Traditional Speed Traps Returning to Cleveland After Voters Kill Traffic Cameras

Even though the cameras are off now, city traffic enforcement is still benefiting from them.

"The cameras allowed us to get a real sense of where a lot of our traffic violations were occurring," said police spokesman Ali Pillow. He said the data will help the department decide where to deploy for traffic stops.

Ten officers currently assigned to different city districts will stay where they are. Seven more will be reassigned from the citywide traffic unit that normally handles things like construction and event detours. Instead, they’ll float throughout the city, spending four hours of each shift in school zones or locations with many violations or accidents.
