Traffic Cameras Focus of Transporation Department

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa transportation officials will take on the controversial issue of automated traffic cameras this week with proposed new rules designed to give them control over whether speed and red light cameras are placed on highways and interstates they oversee.

Iowa is the only state allowing automated cameras to be permanently installed on state-run highways.

The Iowa Department of Transportation on Tuesday will present proposed rules to a legislative committee at the Capitol. The rules require cities and counties to prove there's a critical safety issue at a specific location before cameras would be allowed.

Republican Sen. Brad Zaun says the rules are fine, but he'll introduce a bill again this year to ban traffic cameras. Senate Democrats largely believe cities and counties should decide for themselves and oppose a ban.
