ELMWOOD PLACE, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio village in upheaval over its use of traffic cameras to catch speeders is down to two council members after the majority resigned.
Council member Jerald Robertson says Elmwood Place officials are getting outside advice on how to proceed with four seats vacant. They don't believe they can pass legislation with only two members.
Robertson tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/15dIkCX ) that it's "one of the most stupid situations" he has ever seen. He blames the controversy over speed cameras. He says he has considered quitting himself.
The village of some 2,200 people near Cincinnati became a focal point for a debate common across the country about using traffic cameras for enforcement. Thousands of people got ticketed, leading to a lawsuit and a court injunction to stop using cameras.
