In brief


Dayton to use traffic cameras

Traffic safety enforcement cameras will be active on Dayton streets, with 10 cameras posted at five locations across the city. The camera system activation follows an Ohio Supreme Court ruling that overturned restrictions imposed by the state legislature in 2015.

During October, speed or red light violations will result in warnings. Beginning Nov. 1, violations detected by cameras will generate citations with an $85 fine, with additional penalties for late payments or unpaid fines. Citations are mailed to registered vehicle owners and include payment and appeal directions.

Following are the camera locations: West Third Street at James H. McGee Boulevard (three red light cameras); North Gettysburg Avenue at Fairbanks Avenue (two speed cameras); North Main Street at Siebenthaler Avenue (one speed camera); South Keowee Street between East Third Street and East Fourth Street (two speed cameras) and South Smithville Road at Linden Avenue (two red light cameras).
