The truth is out! No need to worry about those unpaid speed trap tickets going on your credit because it will never happen.

Thousands of drivers caught in a Newburgh Heights speed trap who fail to pay their citations are being misled into believing both their credit scores and financial future are at risk.

The Village of Newburgh Heights has been operating one of 16 speed cameras that generate revenue for municipalities across Ohio. The village’s program has been a source of public debate since its inception in 2013.

Last year it resulted in $2.4 million dollars in revenue before expenses, according to Newburgh Heights Mayor Trevor Elkins. The program covers two locations, including a three-quarter-mile stretch of Interstate 77 (I-77) as well as Harvard Avenue – both going through Newburgh Heights.
