The Des Moines Register reported today that the red light enforcement cameras in Clive may not be having the city's desired effect. The paper's investigation found that the number of accidents at camera-eqipped intersections doubled from 2008 to 2012. Didn't reduce collisions, but may be responsible for driving them up.
So, what do we know, as least where Clive is concerned? When the city council there tried to make them go away, it discovered it would leave a $700,000 budget gap, and was forced to bring them back. All this while keeping those cameras in place, the seem to increase the number of accidents.
Nope...not a cash grab at all.
