Ohio village sued for installing traffic cameras after ODOT said 'no'

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Four Ohioans are suing a Southwest Ohio village for installing two traffic cameras along a federal highway that runs through the community – even after the Ohio Department of Transportation told officials in two letters they were not to do so.

The four people all received tickets from the village of New Richmond, along the Ohio River in Clermont County. They’re being represented by Marc Dann, a Cleveland attorney who is a former Ohio attorney general.

Since the highway, U.S. 52, is managed by the Ohio Department of Transportation, the suit states that the village needed to clear the cameras with the state.

ODOT sent a letter to the village in July 2018, as the ordinance to install the cameras was under review, and then another letter in September, 2018, after it was adopted, informing New Richmond that the state would not grant permits for the cameras.
