Cincinnati mayor kills red-light cameras
Cincinnati has become the only major Ohio city to rule out the use of cameras to catch motorists running red lights. The City Council passed a red-light camera ordinance, but Mayor Charlie Luken vetoed it yesterday.
Luken says he doesn't buy the argument that safety is the main reason for installing the cameras. He sees it as another source of revenue. And the mayor says he's also concerned about fairness and due process. The vote to pass the ordinance was 5-to-4.
Without the six votes necessary to override Luken's veto, the program appears to be dead.
