I-380 Cams Could Violate State Rules
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Some traffic enforcement cameras on I-380 might not be in line with new Iowa DOT regulations. The Iowa Department of Transportation recently sent the Cedar Rapids Police Department an email, saying two speed cameras do not comply with new rules.
The DOT says the camera at J Avenue on southbound I-380 and the camera at Diagonal Drive on northbound I-380 both appear to be less than 1,000 feet from a speed limit change. That's against new traffic camera rules put into effect in February.
Cedar Rapids Police officials say they know the cameras are both less than 1,000 feet from speed limit changes, but they say the speed limit signs don't belong to the city.
DOT officials want a response from CRPD within 30 days. Police say they're not sure yet what their response will entail.
It's still not clear if any of this will have an effect on anyone ticketed by those two cameras since February.
