Red Light Cameras Trigger Suit Against City

  Auto Insurance

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.
