Sounds to me like you couldn't see the sign. Was it an old sign? Was it still reflective to light at night? Most states including Ohio follow the MUTCD (Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices) which has standards that govern, you guessed it, traffic control devices. One of them being the reflectivness of signs at night. Signs, like every thing else fade and get weathered. Quick google search revealed Ohio is indeed following this policy -http://www.dot.state.oh.us/Divisions/Planning/LocalPrograms/LTAP/Documents/Traffic%20Sign%20Retroreflectivity%20-%20FHWA%202012%20Updates.pdf. I'd contact the city or state, depending on whose responsible for the particular street, and ask them to check the retroreflectivity of the sign. There's a tool to do it with. If it's out of compliance, you shouldn't get the ticket because the sign was too difficult to see at night.
