Will Davenport Get Rid Of Red Light Cameras?
Before I moved to the Quad Cities, I never had any kind of driving infractions. Like everyone, I would speed a few miles over to keep up with the flow of traffic, but nothing too crazy. Then River Drive became part of my commute, and a single speed cam dinged me twice.
It's frustrating, especially if you don't realize the limit has changed in an area. But the cameras may be a thing of the past soon. According to KWQC, the Iowa Senate has passed a bill that would ban traffic cameras from sending speeding tickets to drivers.
Many are in support of the idea, arguing that the cameras are just an easy way for the city to make money. However, the Davenport police are saying the cameras really do help drivers stay safe.
It seems this has been an ongoing argument in the Quad Cities for some time. What do you think? Should the cameras be taken out?
