DAYTON — After nearly 700 warnings were issued during a 30-day grace period, drivers who speed past the traffic camera on South Keowee Street will now receive citations, Dayton police announced Saturday.
“Citations for speed violations will now be issued after they are reviewed by an officer,” the police department said on Twitter using the hashtag #slowdown. The police have previously said “a citation will only be issued if there is clear evidence of a violation.”
The camera is located near the Tuffy Brooks Sporting Goods store, between East 3rd Street and East 4th Street.
The city is installing fixed cameras at five sites across the city. The other four installations will happen later this year, followed by 30-day warning periods.
Dayton police also use six handheld speed cameras to capture speeding violations, which they can deploy virtually anywhere in the city.
Drivers weren’t particularly thrilled about the new cameras. Jerry Campbell, of Dayton, said he’s been caught by a camera before.
“We have been in different states and we’ve gotten them because we didn’t see the traffic cam,” Campbell said. “If you lose track of your speed, you have to pay for it.”
Other drivers said the cameras are unfair because they are receiving a fine without being stopped by a police officer.
Staff Writers Malik Perkins and Cornelius Frolik contributed reporting.
