The City of Dayton is looking into bringing back its automated red light camera program. It ended in July 2015, after the state mandated that police officers be present in order to issue citations.
Since then, Chief Richard Biehl says traffic accidents have increased. In response, they’re now seeking proposals from camera vendors to restart the program.
“I think the argument is there that it is a very effective, and if done properly, a very fair way of doing traffic enforcement and it certainly then changes driving behavior.”
