Traffic Tickets Canceled By Ohio Police Chief
More than 900 speeding tickets were issued In Hamilton, Ohio while a the Mid-American Soccer Classic-a youth soccer tournament, was being held, on April 2.
They were automatically issued by a mobile police camera. Neil Ferdelman, the police chief that canceled the tickets, said that he did it because of the tournament, which drew many out-of-towners who were unaware the camera was in use.
According to JournalNews of Hamilton, because of the chief's action, $68 thousand in speeding fines were canceled. A man from Charleston, W.Va., who was attending the tournament, was one of the recipients of a $95 speeding ticket. Follow-up letters were sent out telling drivers to disregard the tickets.
