DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – The Dayton Police Chief went before the City Council April 19 to talk about reinstating red light cameras in the city.

Chief Richard Biehl said the cameras were turned off 2 years ago, and since then red light violations, speeding, accidents and injury accidents, as well as fatalities, have gone up.

“And this technology has demonstrated its effectiveness to create a safe for pedestrian and driving environments,” Biehl said, “and we are recommending returning back to that technology.”

Ohio passed a law requiring an officer be present at right light and speed cameras.
