If you want to see a perfect example of how speed cameras can be misused look up "The Village of Brice" in Hamilton Ohio. The fact the cameras could be used for safety issues are always over shadowed because of small towns or villages such as these.

They've created their own Civil Violation Hearing System so that the money is shared between them and a Company out of Tennessee. This after the Mayors Courts were shut down by the State for reasons such as this. They even got involved with kick backs from the local towing companies and found themselves in hot water.

My daughter received a "civil speeding violation" by mail last month from this same Village. I told her she needs to slow down but she honestly didn't have any idea of when or where she was speeding at. Not sure where safety is created with a ticket that arrives weeks later in the mail.

To clarify this is not a dig on Law Enforcement at all. She was speeding and paid the fine however the camera type of speed enforcement is not about safety but instead revenue.

Long story short if your out driving in Ohio avoid that area!

Thanks for the warning. I wonder if your daughter had had a radar detector if it would have picked up the speed camera?!

Well obviously she was speeding so I told her slow it down. My concern regarding the Village of Brice is their self created Civil Violations Hearing process that they themselves created after the state shut down their Mayors Court. The police force made up of 4 officers that includes the Chief is 100% funded from the speed camera system they implemented.

That is a horrible precedent. It is wide open for abuse.
