Default Ohio Ticket Cameras Challenged

A Perrsyburg, Ohio man has filed a class-action lawsuit against the city of Northwood, its police department, and the company that installed and maintains the red-light and speed cameras in Northwood. The case has been assigned to Judge Robert Pollex.

David A. Czech, on behalf of himself and more than 20,000 others who have been caught by the cameras and issued tickets, claims Northwood and Redflex Traffic Systems Inc. are using an unconstitutional ordinance to extort money from them.

In his complaint, he alleges the ordinance does not “provide due process at any stage of such enforcement.”

Mr. Czech is seeking a judgment in excess of $3 million, which he says is the amount of damages and attorneys’ fees the plaintiffs have incurred.

He also is asking the court to declare the ordinance unconstitutional and issue an injunction prohibiting Northwood from continuing the practice.

Toledo is the only other city in northwest Ohio that has red-light cameras, which have been controversial across the state. A ban on the cameras was vetoed by former Gov. Bob Taft in January

They're making it especially painless to do so, at the moment:
