The city of Dayton has become the latest front in the legal assault on traffic cameras in Ohio.
Attorneys representing drivers filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Montgomery County. Dayton attorney Tom Manning was joined by the Cincinnati-based firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates, which has won court rulings against camera use in the southwest Ohio villages of New Miami and Elmwood Place.
Lawmakers took the first steps to outlaw the cameras that several Ohio cities have set up to catch drivers who speed and run red lights. The bill goes to the House floor without the support of a key Republican.
