New Miami Speed Cameras Update

New Miami Speed Cameras Update

The Dayton Daily News reports that the Village of New Miami will be asking the Ohio Supreme Court to review the ruling in favor of motorists by the Twelfth District Court of Appeals.

Denise Callahan writes, “The Village of New Miami collected about $1.8 million when its speed cameras were rolling, and now it will take its case to the Ohio Supreme Court in hopes of keeping the cash.”

The Ohio Supreme Court only agrees to hear a  small percentage of cases appealed to the court.

We are disappointed that New Miami is continuing to pursue appeals on procedural issues instead of addressing head-on Judge Sage’s decision that the ordinance violated the due process rights of motorists.  Most observers would probably say that the likelihood the Supreme Court will take this case on a procedural appeal is low. We look forward to having this case back before the Common Pleas Court as soon as possible so that we can begin the process of getting refunds to motorists.
