Possible red light cameras in Iowa City spark petition


People in Iowa City took to the streets for a petition drive against red light cameras and other traffic surveillance measures.

This weekend, members of a group called "StopBigBrother.org" held a petition drive at an Iowa City gas station.

People could sign the petition without getting out of their car.

The group is pushing to get 25,000 signatures so the controversial issue can be put to a vote by residents.

"We would have had our signatures long since if the weather weren't so bad but its really pretty cold to stand outside and for people who want to stop and get out of their warm cars," said Caroline Dieterle, a volunteer of StopBigBrother.org.

Group members say they are approaching 2,000 signatures .

They'll be out Sunday afternoon collecting more signatures.
