ACLU sends letter to Iowa City about red light cameras


The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is speaking up against Iowa City's efforts to install red light and speed cameras.

On Friday, the ACLU of Iowa submitted a letter to the Iowa City city council.

The Iowa ACLU is asking the city council to accept a proposed ordinance banning traffic cameras, automatic license plate readers, and unmanned aerial devices.

Iowa City approved a plan to install 10 cameras at the most accident prone intersections in February.

In prior interviews, the city attorney has said the group wanting a referendum missed the deadline to have such a vote.
