Citizens against photo enforcement in stand off with city council
Chillicothe, Ohio local group fighting city council to regain civil liberties lost during a monetary venture with Redflex traffic systems. The contract with Redflex fleeces the citizens at a time of economic crisis.
C.A.P.E (citizens against photo enforcement) is still at it. Their goal is to get the red-light camera’s brought to the November ballot in order to give the people of Chillicothe a voice on the issue. The recent lawsuit filed against Redflex has been temporarily pushed back with a continuance granted to Redflex, by attending judge Martin Spring.
Redflex is a photo enforcement company who has contracted with the city of Chillicothe to install (6) six red-light camera’s in very strategically located (money making) intersections throughout Chillicothe.
City council took the initiative to vote on the camera’s without consulting with the constituents, and in return, the residents have vowed to vote them out of their seats, which are up this year. Local residents have signed up and are prepared to make a run against the council members.
Some citizens have also received the refunds due them after a three-month wait.
In November, Mayor Joe Sulzer ordered all right turn on red violations to be returned after they were being wrongfully cited for turning right on red.
There was a rally held Monday Feb. 9th in front of the Ross County courthouse. Many showed up with signs expressing their desire to have the camera’s taken out and their due process returned. The rally was followed by council meeting that again, was dominated by C.A.P.E. discussion.
