COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) - Ohio is one step closer to banning red light and speed cameras after a vote of approval in a House subcommittee Tuesday.
The bill does still allow for the cameras in school zones.
It will now go for a vote in the full House Wednesday, but is unlikely to clear the Senate before legislators go on summer break.
Officers from cities in our area that use the cameras have testified against the bill saying the cameras cut down on crashes and help them combat other crime.
They say they will keep fighting over the summer to defeat the bill.
