CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – Just to be clear – it’s still illegal to speed or run red lights. But now, those pesky cameras we’ve all seen and heard about can’t enforce those laws in Cleveland.  The city will have to rely on good old-fashioned policing.

It was an overwhelming majority voting these cameras out – a 3-to-1 margin, to be exact.

The vote to change the charter would ban the cameras – unless a cop is sitting there next to one and physically issues a ticket to the law breaker right then and there.

According to Mayor Frank Jackson’s office, you may still receive a ticket in the mail from the Photo Enforcement Program.

The Mayor said Wednesday that violators who received a ticket while the cameras were enforced are still required to pay them.

In fact, if you receive a ticket for a speeding event up until 11:59 p.m. on Nov 3, you must pay that ticket.

Many voters this morning, were happy about the vote: “It’s fantastic. It’s a win for the city of Cleveland,” says Tom Goad of Cleveland.
