In Cleveland and across a lot of the state, they came down. Supporters said officers were needed to detect camera malfunctions and situations that clearly called for an exemption from ticketing.
In Linndale, Police Chief Tim Franczak said he hopes the new ruling will help free up officers for other police work in his town. Wednesday, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled in favor of cities being able to control how they're used.
The court found that it was illegal to require that an officer be present when cameras were being used, that there must be a lengthy safety study and public information campaign before cameras are used, and that drivers could be ticketed only if they exceeded the posted speed limit by certain amounts, such as by 6 miles per hour in a school zone.
For more than 2 years, OH law required traffic cameras to be manned by a police officer.
An officer has discretion about whether to pull someone over when using the speed cameras operated in Liberty, Youngstown and Girard. The cameras will go into use at the beginning of the school year. At East Cleveland City Hall, we found the Mayor and Law Director high-fiving over the ruling. But amid state lawmaker efforts to restrict their use, and in the wake of a scandal involving the city's former red light camera vendor, Columbus got rid of them.
Drivers we met reacted by talking about the traffic camera tickets, saying, "I've done had about 3 or 4 of 'em in this area of East Cleveland".

"I'm a strong proponent of safe driving, and I believe police officers are the best deterrent to bad driving", Patton said. Together, these five made up the majority in the case, with Justices William O'Neill and Pat DeWine dissenting.
They are still required to have a law enforcement officer be present at the location of a traffic camera.
"There seems to be a distaste in the Ohio General Assembly for these speed cameras".
The regulations took effect in March of 2015, regulating the use of automated traffic enforcement programs. Dayton is also among cities equipping some officers with new hand-held cameras to record violations.
Attorney General's spokesman Dan Tierney said Wednesday the case couldn't be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court because it involved a exclusively state law.
