Fight over traffic cameras continues in Sioux City

Posted:

Sioux City city leaders said they are not backing down on their fight for traffic cameras.

City leaders went before the Iowa Department of Transportation in Des Moines on Tuesday to state their case.

The DOT said they want cities to let them know where they plan to put traffic cameras before they're installed.

Then it would be up to the DOT to decide whether it's safe there.

City leaders don't agree with the proposal. They want to be able to place cameras where they choose.

"We'll continue to argue that point and ultimately, we're working with other communities in the state of Iowa who also have traffic enforcement cameras to look at our options as we go forward," interim City Manager Bob Padmore said.

Padmore adds they plan to submit written comments and go before the DOT at a public forum on October 30.
