The Ohio Supreme Court plans to hear arguments in two months on the use of traffic cameras, in a case one group says could affect every state resident who drives or owns a vehicle.

Court records show the justices scheduled oral arguments for June 11 in a motorist's challenge of a red-light citation in Toledo. The motorist says the city's system is bypassing the judiciary and violating his constitutional due process rights. The state's highest court likely will have a decisive say on a growing movement against camera enforcement that has seen motorists win recent lawsuits in several other municipalities. The court could deliver its ruling by the end of this year.

"It's moving at a good pace," Andrew Mayle, a Fremont attorney representing driver Bradley Walker in his challenge, said Tuesday. "We're ready to go."

Critics of camera enforcement against speeding and running red lights say the systems are revenue-raisers that violate basic rights. Cities with cameras contend that state law allows them to handle such matters administratively. They also defend cameras as helpful in stretching police resources and making communities safer.

"I see it as a significant public safety issue," Toledo law director Adam Loukx said. He said that while drivers might resent the inconvenience and cost of the citations, he's more concerned about preventing death and destruction on the city's streets.

Nearly 30 Ohio legislators and two civil liberties groups have backed the camera-use challenge in legal briefs filed with the state Supreme Court. Among them are sponsors of pending legislation that would ban or restrict camera enforcement statewide.
