Speeding tickets in Ohio can be given without radar/lidar

Unread post by Radar Identified on

:shock:

Title line says it all. If you think it's too easy for Prosecutors to get a conviction for speeding in Ontario... watch what happens if you get stopped in Ohio. :shock: Ohio has been known for many years as having the heaviest traffic enforcement on the continent.

Now in the Buckeye State, the only thing that is required for a conviction is that the officer visually estimated your speed. They don't even have to pull out the radar or lidar. While radar or lidar is preferred, it is not mandatory.
