Red Light Camera Process Taking Longer Than Expected In Iowa City
By Mark Carlson, Reporter
IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa City police chief Sam Hargadine says the process to install red light cameras at busy intersections is taking longer than expected. In February the city council approved a measure to add cameras at 10 of the most accident prone intersections in Iowa City.
“There are different technologies that are taking longer as no one solution is recommended throughout the city’s different intersections,” Hargadine said in an email on Monday.
The city currently remains in the “evaluation phase.” Hargadine said he is unaware of a target date for the cameras to be installed.
The complexity of installation at different intersections is also slowing down the process, Hargadine said.
City transportation manager John Yapp did not immediately return a call seeking comment on Monday.
