Sioux City is taking the Iowa Department of Transportation to court over the use of speed cameras in construction zones on Interstate 29 inside the city limits. Assistant City Attorney Justin Vondrak says the city has obtained a temporary injunction to continue to use the cameras on I-29.
The DOT sent the city a letter on July 17th demanding that the city remove the cameras from the construction zones on the interstate.
The city maintains it has the right by state law to position the cameras anywhere on the interstate within the city limits.
A hearing date on the matter has not yet been set.
