Iowa speeders beware: More traffic cameras are planned

Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Council Bluffs, Des Moines, Muscatine.....

Iowa State Patrol says they aren't going to use them on the interstates, but as Cedar Rapids and other cities have shown, it generates revenue.
Cedar Rapids began using the first such system on an Iowa interstate earlier this summer. Since June, the city has issued automated speeding tickets along a busy stretch of Interstate Highway 380, where the first such camera was placed. Police said three more will be installed soon.
"The best way to get people to slow down or engage in good behavior is to give them a ticket," Hallmark said. "Cameras are very effective when used appropriately."

They sure know a money-maker when they see one. Maybe eventually we'll have special police who just shake down people on the streets for money.

Pretty soon we will have checks at the borders and you better have your papers in order.
