ELMWOOD PLACE, OH (FOX19) -
The Elmwood Place Village Council met Tuesday for the first time since drivers took to the streets to protest newly installed speed cameras.
While the issue was not on the agenda, the public was allowed to address the full council.
"I'm still a little frustrated," cited driver Randy Kent said. "I'm more frustrated that I know there's a lot of people out there that got citations, got notice and want to fight this, and then didn't come in a sense to fight it."
"I feel like nothing's been resolved," UC student Danielle Rains added. "I feel like they begrudgingly listened to us and they're holding strong."
A representative from Optotraffic, Mickey Shepherd, was also in attendance. Shepherd stood behind the accuracy of the units saying they are calibrated daily using four satellites. He also argued the company's units in Maryland have been tested over 250 times by outside sources in the last year.
"I've received traffic citations, I've received tickets," Shepherd said. "I don't like to receive them, I understand that, but the speed limit needs to be obeyed."
Police Chief William Peskin says, according to Optotraffic, speeding incidents have dropped by 25 percent in the village since the units were installed. The speed limit is 25 miles an hour throughout the village with the exception of the 20 miles per hour zone on Vine Street from 7:30 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. on school days.
Peskin says there is leeway for drivers going over the limit; six miles an hour in the school zone and eight in the 25 mile per hour zones.
While the chief maintains the decision to employ the ‘speed cameras' is based on public safety concerns, he acknowledges, "Public safety is not free. Who should pay for that, violators of the law or people obeying the law?"
The village mayor refused comment Tuesday.
Peskin says drivers looking to appeal their tickets can call the number on listed on their citation. The police chief then has sixty days to schedule a hearing.
