BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1. That section 4511.095 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:
Sec. 4511.095.  (A) Section 34 of Article II, Ohio Constitution, provides that laws may be passed providing for the comfort, health, safety and general welfare of all employees. The general assembly finds these ends will be served by enacting legislation that prohibits the use of traffic law photo-monitoring devices.

(C) (1) Except as provided in division (C)(2) of this section, no local authority or the state highway patrol, utilizing either its own employees, those of another public entity, or those of a private entity, shall use a traffic law photo-monitoring device to determine compliance with, or to detect a violation of, section 4511.13 or 4511.21 of the Revised Code or a substantially equivalent municipal ordinance or county or township resolution.
(2) A local authority may use a traffic law photo-monitoring device to determine compliance with, or to detect a violation of, section 4511.21 of the Revised Code or a substantially equivalent municipal ordinance or county or township resolution within a school zone during school recess and while children are going to or leaving school during opening or closing hours only if a law enforcement officer employed by the local authority is present at the location of the traffic law photo-monitoring device.
Section 2.  That sections 4511.092 and 4511.094 of the Revised Code are hereby repealed.
