Mayor plans to fight red light camera restrictions

Miami Valley News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Mayor Nan Whaley plans to fight a provision in the new Ohio transportation budget that would penalize cities for the use of those cameras.

It requires cities that operate them to report any fines the cameras generate, and for the state to deduct that income from their state allocations.

“We wanted to make sure any revenue that has come from the cameras goes right back into the police, so we have done that, it’s its own fund. It goes right back into policing,” says Mayor Whaley.

Dayton reported nearly $2 million in revenue from its camera program, which the city reinstated last year.
