Wednesday night, the Hamilton city council discussed the use of speed cameras throughout the city. The mobile camera has been used for a year, but was recently taken off the road.
On April 2, 2011, the camera caught more than 900 traffic violations but the Hamilton police chief has decided to wave those tickets because he says drivers were put in a bad situation.
"The stop signs were actually covered over," said Police Chief Neil Ferdelman. "I think when there is that kind of change in the traffic pattern, and an officer may be telling a motorist 'get through here, we need to get hundreds of cars through,' I think that negates that type of enforcement action.
A majority of the violators were from out of town, who were in town for a soccer tournament. Chief Ferdelman says their department wasn't aware the tournament was taking place.
