LINCOLN HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -
On the heels of Elmwood Place installing a camera to catch speeders, the village of Lincoln Heights is considering one as well.
No vote was taken during a town council meeting on Thursday night, but everything is in place for the camera's use.
"Speed cameras are needed in Lincoln Heights to improve the safety in our village," said village manager, Stephanie Summerow Dumas.
In Elmwood Place, the cameras send speeders $105 fines in the mail. Tens of thousands of citations have been issued since they were implemented a few months ago. A lawsuit has been filed over the legality of the cameras.
"We were able to look at some of the mishaps that [Elmwood Place] had with this system and want to make sure we don't make the same mistakes," said Dumas.
"I think it's just a ploy to get more money," said Lincoln Heights resident Leroy Stenson. "[Town council] just needs to stop and think about what has already happened in Elmwood. The people were displeased with it and I think a lot of people in this area feel the same way."
There are those who believe the cameras will help, if town leaders don't get carried away with it.
"As long as they are fair and they're not going over like Elmwood with one mile per hour or something crazy like that, yes I agree," said Lincoln Heights resident, Reashawn Anthony. "But if they're going to come with some ridiculous one mile over or two miles over, that's ridiculous."
"We've been really working on this and making sure that its fair to everyone involved," said Summerow Dumas.
The first proposed location for the speed camera in Lincoln Heights is along Neumann Way where the speed limit is 55 miles per hour.
According to Summerow Dumas, citations would not be issued unless someone breaks the speed limit by 10 miles per hour.
Town council is expected to vote during a meeting on Dec. 24.
