CASH COW: Ohio city issued over 9,000 speeding tickets in past 2 months

Police in Norton issued more than 9,000 speeding violations in the past two months, racking up $1.8 million in fines for the city.

From Sept. 10 through Oct. 31, Norton issued 9,352 civil violations for speeding under its photo-enforced radar program. The Akron Beacon Journal reports tickets were $200 each, totaling $1.8 million in fines.

The city released statistics on the program Tuesday. Norton officials say the program reduces highway crashes and slows down motorists in a dangerous construction zone area.
