Speed trap history

Linndale, often called a speed trap, had for many years the busiest, on a per-capita basis, Mayor's Court in the State of Ohio. The village in the past has successfully defended its legal right to enforce the 60 mph speed limit on the 422 yards (386 m) of Interstate 71 within its jurisdiction under the "Home Rule" provisions of the state constitution. The combination of traffic enforcement and Mayor's Court has provided 80% of Linndale's one million dollar annual budget, and underwritten its four full-time and ten part-time police officers.

On December 20, 2012, Governor John Kasich signed a bill into law effective March 22, 2013, which dissolved Linndale's Mayor's Court. A sergeant in the Linndale police department stated that traffic cases would subsequently be handled by nearby Parma.

In response to decreasing revenue, Linndale has installed speed cameras on its most heavily traveled non-interstate, Memphis Avenue, and is processing some traffic violations locally instead of relying on Parma Municipal Court.; however another attempt to increase revenue with a proposed increase in the village income tax from 2% to 2.5% failed in an 8-12 referendum vote.
