TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Red light cameras in Toledo make at-large Council candidate Bill Delaney "see red." He says if elected, he'll push for the elimination of those cameras.
On Friday, Delaney held a protest along the Anthony Wayne Trail, in hopes of generating more support for his campaign and for his crusade to eliminate Toledo's red light camera program. Delaney says the cameras aren't changing people's driving habits.
"I don't believe in them, I really don't. They slow down for a while, they pick back up. I think it's a waste of money and it's not doing any good," said Delaney.
While many argue the cameras are needed to help reduce accidents in high traffic areas, Delaney believes it's simply a big money grab by the city.
"All we're doing is looking for more and more revenue. We've already got money coming in from the casinos, why do we need these?" questions Delaney.
The latest Toledo Finance Department report shows through September, the city collected $2.1 million this year from red light and speed camera fines.
