Roadside cameras are topic of a proposed state law
(2007-06-12)
(WOUB) - Those roadside cameras that some Ohio cities are using to catch motorists who run red lights are once again the topic of a proposed state law.

Ohio legislators may soon be voting on a bill that would require those cities to post warning signs on all incoming state highways and Interstates, telling drivers that the special cameras are in use.

State Representative Ross McGregor is pushing the idea.

The Springfield Republican says it's not so much a consumer protection bill as it is a bill to encourage safer driving.

He talked with statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen.

Representative MeGregor's bill on red-light cameras may come up for a vote this week in the House Infrastructure Committee.

The panel is expected to recommend the bill for passage by the full House of Representatives.

McGregor says in the first 3 committee hearings, there was no opposition testimony.
