Iowa City to Ban Red Light Cameras and More – Should New Jersey Follow? [POLL]

The Council in Iowa Cita, IA voted unanimously Tuesday night to ban the use of red light cameras in the city.

According to The Inquisitr,

The ban was proposed by StopBigBrother.org. The civil rights organization contends that “traffic surveillance has little to do with safety and everything to do with revenue.” The group further asserts that the use of automatic traffic-enforcement devices are a violation of citizens’ constitutional rights.

Their protest and petition gained the attention of Iowa City Council. As the city has not installed any cameras to date, officials have recommended that the ordinance be repealed.

The proposed red light camera ban for Iowa City is just two votes away from becoming law. If enacted, the surveillance devices will be banned citywide for the next two years.

If this passes, use of drones and license plate readers will also be banned in the city. You can read the full proposal here.
