Traffic Cameras: A Hero in Ohio.
All hail Judge Richard Ruehlman. The Ohio jurist declared a traffic camera program in Elmwood Place unconstitutional in March. The village ignored the judge’s order and kept operating the lucrative program. Today, the judge ordered the cameras confiscated from the miscreant officials and their contractor.
The order comes as the Ohio legislature looks poised to ban the cameras in a victory for the rule of law.
Looks like someone should be on the shortlist for a Profiles in Courage award.
