Columbus police consider using cameras to nab drivers who run red lights

Police spokeswoman Sherri Mercurio says the cameras would be placed at the city’s most dangerous intersections.
Officials will discuss the proposal at a public hearing Tuesday evening at the Columbus Health Department on Parson’s Avenue.
