WARNING: 10,000+ already caught speeding on two new Dayton traffic cameras


Don’t say you weren’t warned. 

Since restarting its traffic photo enforcement program in October, Dayton police have issued 10,181 citations originating from two mobile speed enforcement trailers on Riverside Drive and North James H. McGee Boulevard.

FULL REPORT: Dayton installs 1st of 5 fixed-site speed, red light cameras 

Dayton’s camera enforcement program went dark for two years due to a state law later ruled unconstitutional by the Ohio Supreme Court.

In addition to the mobile trailers, Dayton just installed two fixed speed cameras at the first of five planned sites. After a 30-day warning period there, motorists will begin receiving citations in March if caught on those cameras on North Keowee Street between East Third Street and East Fifth Street.

“After the warning period, citations will be issued to the registered owner of a vehicle photographed violating the speed limit,” the city said in a release. “Every potential violation is reviewed by a Dayton Police Department officer, and a citation will only be issued if there is clear evidence of a violation.” 

Here’s Dayton police data from the mobile trailers showing how many warnings were given during the first 30-day period, and how many citations were issued later.
