COAST brings campaign to ban Red Light Cameras
Cleveland and Garfield Heights
Friday, April 9, 2010 at Noon

For immediate release:

Monday, April 5, 2010 at 8:30 AM

For more information:
Christopher P. Finney, 513-720-2996 (COAST)
Maryanne Petranek, 216-503-2238 ( Cleveland )
Frank Wagner, 216-799-2909 ( Garfield Heights )

On Friday, at the invitation of local activists, COAST returns to Cleveland to formally launch petition drives to fight Red Light Cameras in the cities of Cleveland and Garfield Heights . COAST will come with petitions and petitioning instructions in hand to start the 2010 drive. The details of the gathering are as follows:

The intersection of Chester Ave. and E. 71st
Friday, April 9, 2010 at Noon

(This is the intersection where more tickets have been issued for red light cameras in Cleveland than any other.)

In 2009, at least three other cities in Ohio batted back Red Light Cameras. Pickerington residents defeated the plan with legislative action, and voters in Chillicothe and Heath, Ohio banned the cameras with ballot initiatives.

In 2008,Cincinnati voters banned the pernicious and intrusive devices with a Charter Amendment.

The Cleveland and Garfield Heights Charter Amendment proposals are modeled after Cincinnati 's and will effectively ban unmanned red light and speeding cameras from being enforced in City limits.

On Thursday, COAST and local volunteers in Toledo will re-launch the effort to ban the cameras in that City as well.
