Prankster puts ‘for sale’ sign on Ohio traffic cam

NEW MIAMI, Ohio (AP) — A prankster put a "for sale" sign on a
southwest Ohio village’s speed camera in the aftermath of a judge’s
order to stop using them.
The sign taped to the camera apparatus
listed a price of $1 million. That’s the amount that the village of New
Miami had collected in 15 months of automated traffic enforcement,
according to court arguments heard Tuesday.
Butler County Judge
Michael J. Sage ordered a halt to camera use for violations of
motorists’ due process rights. The village’s attorneys indicated it will
appeal.
The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News (http://bit.ly/1cqEHM0 ) reports that a village
police officer removed the "for sale" sign from the traffic camera by midmorning Thursday.
