Must vote "for" the amendment to ban the cameras in order for this ban to pass

Vote "yes" on Issue 99 and those unmanned speed/traffic cameras will be banned by charter amendment.

The only way you can get a ticket is an officer must be present to hand you a ticket.

Looks like the cameras are going down. So far the issue is passing 72% which means the camera will be prohibited in Maple Hts

Much thanks to all the petitioners who fought all the way to the Ohio Supreme Court to get the charter amendment on the ballot so the voters could decide.

God bless you!!!
