Columbus is host to the National Hockey League All Star game this week-end. The NHL showcase will bring thousands fans and visitors to the city as well as international media attention.
Columbus’ red light cameras are going mobile. The police division now has two new SUVs that are equipped with Redflex cameras to record speeding violations in school zones.
The first red light cameras in Columbus begin operating March 7th at two of the city’s most accident prone intersections. The cameras will record the license plates of drivers who enter the intersections after the traffic signal has turned red. City officials say the cameras will reduce injuries and fatalities. Critics believe they’re an easy way for government to pump up revenue.
