Ohio Town to Refund Speeding Fines to More Than 100 Drivers

Authorities said the 115 tickets issued would normally carry a $120 fine

Authorities say a police mistake has led to more than 100 people in Ohio having their speeding ticket fines refunded. 

The refund applies to drivers who received a speeding ticket from a hand-held speed camera Feb. 1 near Byrnedale Elementary School in Toledo, The Blade reports.

Police Chief George Kral said drivers were improperly ticketed due to a police mistake. 

City Councilman Rob Ludeman said an officer was stationed inside the school zone, where the speed limit is lower, but his camera targeted vehicles outside of the zone, where the speed limit is higher. Ludeman says he and his wife both received an improper ticket. 

Authorities said the 115 tickets issued would normally carry a $120 fine. People who already have paid the fine will receive a refund.
