Ohio transportation bill slashedRail corridor survives in state Senate, but work-zone cameras, seat-belt rule killedWednesday, March 18, 2009 3:10 AMTHE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
State senators last night took a knife to many of the most controversial provisions of Gov. Ted Strickland’s transportation plan, including tougher enforcement of Ohio’s seat-belt law, cameras to catch speeders in construction zones and a requirement that drivers turn on their headlights in the rain.The Senate’s transportation committee did not, however, kill the most debated provision of the plan: a passenger-rail corridor connecting Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati.
FOOTNOTE: Arkansas lawmakers (who just passed a law making seat belt violations a primaryoffense) Ohio lawmakers took out a provision allowing police to cite drivers for not wearing seat belts, even if that was their only violation.
