Traffic Cameras

The money from speed and red light cameras keeps on rolling in for the City of Des Moines.

The numbers from the month of December show net revenue of $192,365 coming from about 4,200 violations. That is more than double the amount of revenue made in November, which was just over $95,000.  

The majority of tickets come from the fixed speed camera on Interstate 235, that camera alone issued 3,200 tickets in December.

Over the year the cameras pulled in more than $2.7 million in fines. After paying the company who maintains the cameras, the city actually made $1.6 million.
