DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A southwest Ohio city will start following the new state rules on traffic camera tickets, while continuing its court challenge.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley says the city will keep its cameras on, but issue tickets only when an officer is present. The Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/1KKMQAg ) reports the decision was because of a state budget restriction passed last month that will withhold funds from cities to offset ticket revenues they collect through photo enforcement without officers present.

Legislative critics of camera enforcement passed the requirement for officers that took effect earlier this year. Dayton won an injunction against the new rules, among several cities fighting them legally. Ohio has appealed the injunction for Dayton, which now is asking Montgomery County court to allow it to keep revenue.
