CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Transportation is questioning the location of two traffic enforcement cameras and that could mean that thousands of tickets that were issued don’t meet state standards.
According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, the DOT is claiming that two cameras along Interstate 380 in downtown Cedar Rapids are within 1,000 feet of a speed limit change, and that’s against a state rule.
The DOT has asked the Cedar Rapids Police Department to provide the distance between the speed limit change and the cameras. The department has 30 days to respond to the request.
Cedar Rapids first installed the traffic enforcement cameras in 2010 and there are now 29 in place throughout the city, the Gazette reports.
