Trotwood will again use speed cameras

Trotwood starting next month will cite speeders again using automated cameras, except now the devices are now mobile and will be operated by police officers.

The city last year turned off the automated cameras it used to fine motorists for speeding and running red lights to comply with tough new restrictions on their operation imposed by state lawmakers.

But Trotwood likely will become the second Ohio city to use hand-held cameras, which allow police to issue civil citations without having to follow and pull over speeding vehicles.

Dayton also has explored starting an automated traffic camera program that complies with state restrictions.
