Speed Cameras On Interstate 380 Going Live Saturday

By Jeff Raasch

CEDAR RAPIDS -- Speeders on Interstate 380 will be ticketed starting Saturday if they are caught by the automatic enforcement camera.

The cameras are monitoring northbound traffic near the Diagonal Drive SW exit. For the past two weeks, violators have been issued warnings.

But at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, that will change, police said.

Fines will range from $25 to $500, depending on how fast the vehicle was traveling. The speed limit in the area is 55 mph.

More cameras will be installed near St. Luke's Hospital to monitor southbound traffic in the future, police said.

Police Chief Greg Graham said the number of speeders on I-380 in Cedar Rapids has decreased since the cameras first started rolling. Three weeks ago, the cameras identified about 400 violators each day. Now, the daily number is around 100.

Still, more than 1,000 speeders were caught from June 2 to June 10, police said.

"That tells me we have a speeding problem," Sgt. Cristy Hamblin said.
