EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio – News 5 has learned that East Cleveland is again working with a collection agency to collect on illegal tickets.
They are going after drivers busted at a red light camera.
In court documents, East Cleveland admits it doesn’t have the resources to station an officer at every traffic camera, as state law requires.
But that hasn’t stopped the city from raking in the cash at your expense.
Not one but two flashes illuminate the corner of Superior Avenue and Coventry Road as Jasmine Robinson’s car makes a slow right turn.
“It just flashed my car and we kept going” said Robinson.
Robinson says her friend was behind the wheel but the $95 ticket that came in the mail was addressed to her. What you can’t see in the video is the East Cleveland police officer legally required to be stationed near the camera.
