Ohio Supreme Court Traffic Rule Amendments

The Supreme Court of Ohio announced Friday the adoption of amendments to the Ohio Traffic Rules and a revised traffic ticket format. The amendments become effective Jan. 1, 2010, while actual use of the new ticket doesn't become mandatory until July 1, 2010, giving local law enforcement jurisdictions time to use current tickets until supplies run out before ordering and using the revised ticket. (Court's Announcement)

Revisions to the Multi-Court Uniform Traffic Ticket remove all but four digits of a defendant's Social Security number to address identity theft concerns, conform to new rules regarding public access to court records and recognize that Ohio's new operator's licenses do not contain Social Security numbers.
