Iowa senate passes bill banning traffic cameras


A bill to ban traffic cameras in Iowa cleared a big hurdle by passing the state senate. It now heads to the house for approval.

It would require taking down cameras that track cars that speed or run red lights by July 1. 

Davenport has 14 such cameras and losing them would hit the city financially. Davenport collected more than $1 million from violations caught by traffic cameras last year.
