Public Hearing Today on Iowa's Automated Traffic Cameras
ANKENY, Iowa - Iowa transportation officials are asking for public input on proposed new rules on automated traffic enforcement cameras.
Iowa is the only state allowing automated cameras to be permanently installed on state-run highways.
The Iowa Department of Transportation presented the proposed rules to a legislative committee at the Capitol earlier this month and now they are holding a hearing to get feedback from the public.
The rules require cities and counties to prove there's a critical safety issue at a specific location before cameras would be allowed.
The proposed rules would govern where and how the cameras are used on Iowa interstates and highways.
Officials said the proposed rules will govern both fixed and mobile camera systems for speed and red-light enforcement.
