Are Speed Camera Tickets On The Way Out?
You've seen them around - the speed cameras. Sometimes they do some good, but not everyone is happy with them.Of course, it's a recurring debate as to whether or not it's constitutional, and some people are very passionate about the debate on both sides. Some feel it's a violation of their privacy, and a violation of due process.
An appellate court in Ohio, made a ruling against in a class-action lawsuit for the same reasons.
According to The News Paper,
The appellate judges agreed with the lower court that the case was particularly well suited to a class action since every ticket recipient suffered the same injury -- a ticket -- and would seek the same relief -- a refund -- all of which could be efficiently resolved in a single proceeding. If the court does find the program unconstitutional, all citations will be void and the city and Optotraffic would have to refund every dollar collected.
