Red light cameras around Iowa

If the premise is about safety, wouldn't it make better sense to put them closer to schools and parks where children play.

One in Cedar Rapids is 5 blocks from a junior high for traffic driving away from the school.

At a $100 a pop in CR, it's hard to think it's anything but revenue.

Hundreds of them there at a $100 fine each.

They should change the name of the Cubs to the Cash Cows. (Still wouldn't get to the World Series, though)
