A Fortune 500 firm calling Cleveland, Ohio a scofflaw for failing to pay over $9 million in speed camera fees. Xerox made its case earlier this month to US District Court Judge Dan Aaron Polster, who must decide whether city officials are on the hook for inking a four-year photo enforcement less than a year before Cleveland voters revolted and ordered the cameras taken down.

New Hampshire Backs Down On Driver Privacy

New Hampshire once had the strongest protections in the nation for the privacy of its drivers. State officials were explicitly prohibited from participating in any way with national licensing databases, and neither photo enforcement nor automated license plate readers (ALPR, also known as ANPR) could be used, with the exception of license plate readers on toll roads. Governor Maggie Hassan (D) set a different course last month as she signed legislation eliminating these protections.

US District Court Judge Michael H. Watson on Wednesday sentenced former Redflex lobbyist John P. Raphael to one year and three months in prison and a $5100 fine for his role in a bribery scheme in Cleveland and Cincinnati, Ohio.

Rapahel’s attorney, S. Michael Miller, had used this fact to push for the lighter sentence. Since his client was charged with a lesser crime than the other Redflex co-conspirators, Miller insisted, the court should go easy on Raphael.
