Cities Attempt to Justify Traffic Camera Use

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) --  The Iowa Department of Transportation is starting to take a closer look at traffic cameras.

This month, multiple cities, including Cedar Rapids, are required to send reports to the DOT justifying their use. Back in February, DOT put those standards into place with the goal of creating a check and balance system for these cameras

The main thing DOT is looking for is crashes, namely the number and severity before the cameras went in, and after the cameras went in.

Here in Cedar Rapids, the cameras were installed in 2010.
In their report, the city says overall crashes are down - especially at the S-curve.
