TRAFFIC CAMERAS: Sioux City Files Lawsuit

Sioux City leaders are taking the Branstad administration to court over new rules that govern traffic enforcement cameras.

The rules require cities to prove that cameras being used on state-maintained roads are necessary by filing regular crash data reports.

Sioux City uses speed cameras on Interstate 29. The city filed a lawsuit Wednesday, claiming the rules are too broad and would limit the city’s legal use of their cameras.

The rules went into effect last month.

    If I29 has such a speeding problem, place real officers on patrol. You just may get some drunks and drug runners. Departments get a cut of drug money they find, cameras can not do that.
