The issue of controversial automated traffic cameras used in communities in America is revisited.
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend revisits the issue of controversial automated traffic cameras, which are now used by hundreds of communities in the United States to detect and ticket motorists' violations. Advocates say the cameras free up police and make communities safer, whereas foes argue they primarily raise revenues. In Ohio, officials passed a law effectively barring the cameras from issuing traffic tickets unless a police officer is present, but several cities challenged the law, putting the issue in legal limbo as the state debates the constitutionality. NewsHour's Rick Karr reports in this updated segment.
