The town of New Miami, Ohio was just ordered to pay penalized drivers $3,000,000 for unconstitutional traffic tickets. More than 4,000 tickets were distributed by a traffic camera installed outside a local diner, but unlike a traditional speeding ticket, there was no option for drivers to contest the tickets. This was deemed in violation of the Ohio state constitution and a judge ordered the city to pay back the money. It may be a while before drivers see any cash since the city’s lawyers have a chance to appeal.
