Cincinnati judge orders all speed cameras confiscated, manufacturer held in contemptSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sat, 07/06/2013 - 15:35
(NaturalNews) Chalk one up for privacy, at least in one part of the country.
Traffic cameras have been a part of the urban scenery for years now, but in Elmwood Place - a suburb of Cincinnati - they are history. Finally.
In a recent court hearing, Judge Robert Ruehlman ordered them not only to be shut off but to be impounded - taken off the streets for good.
The ruling comes as a result of a contentious legal battle over the speed cameras. Both sides of the case were back before Ruehlman during a contempt hearing June 27, "where the judge ruled that Elmwood Place and the speed camera contractor Optotraffic were in contempt of court," WLWT reported.
