Signatures needed in Iowa red light cameras petition

IOWA CITY (AP) — Iowa City officials say a petition in support of banning the use of red light cameras and drones does not have enough signatures.

The petition had just over 2,000 valid signatures instead of the required 2,500 valid signatures. Petition organizers say they believe they can make up the difference. They have 15 days to collect more.

The group behind the petition wants to put their proposal on a ballot this year.

The Iowa City Council approved traffic enforcement cameras last year. Iowa lawmakers recently decided not to change state law dealing with traffic cameras that ticket motorists for speeding or running red lights.
