A lawsuit has been filed in Scott County District Court and is seeking class action status against the city of Davenport. The lawsuit claims Rock Island's traffic cameras violate state code and are only a moneymaker for the city.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of thousands of
people who have received tickets as a result of the cameras, which monitor
intersections and streets for speeding motorists and those who run red
lights. The case alleges state law notes criminal motor vehicle tickets
cannot be converted into municipal infractions.
