MUSCATINE, Iowa - Muscatine may be the latest Iowa community to welcome in red light cameras. The city council was set to discuss an ordinance to add both red light and speed cameras on Thursday night.

The cameras would work much like the cameras do in Davenport and Cedar Rapids, photographing license plates in order for police to issue tickets.

A study of six intersections in the city found that Park Avenue and Cleveland Street had 233 violations, 22 percent of all the violations recorded.
