Clive Plans to Greenlight Red-Light Cameras


By Becky Ogann

CLIVE (AP) - City leaders will turn on the red-light cameras that went dark last year.

The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in August that the cameras were legal. Clive City Manager Dennis Henderson says more people ran red lights when the cameras were shut off.

Drivers in Clive can also no longer claim that someone else was behind the wheel.

The Iowa Supreme Court, in a split ruling last month, upheld the city of Davenport's use of traffic cameras to catch speeders and drivers who run red lights after a man challenged the city's ordinance.

Henderson says Clive isn't looking to add more cameras.
