Cleveland City Council did the right thing on Wednesday, September 3, 2014, when they voted to place the traffic camera issue on the November, 2014 ballot. The entire article can be read here at cleveland.com.
The entire process was just a formality. Ohio State Law mandates a citizen initiative be put on the ballot if the signatures are verified. (Apparently, Maple Hts. politicians don’t think they have to follow the law. Good luck with that one. You can catch up on that drama right here.)
Councilperson Joe Cimperman has the right idea:
“….because they do not do what they’re supposed to do. They were supposed to make life safer, sure they slow people down, but you see an increase in the number of rear end collisions and you see people speeding as soon as they pass the cameras,” said Cimperman.
We agree councilor!!
