Arizona saw a few documented accidents caused by freeway speed cameras and scamera vans. Last week a similar accident happened in Sioux City, IA.
A woman traveling down the I-29 became distracted by flooding nearby and lost control of her car. Before she could regain control she had smashed into a dangerous road hazard, otherwise known as a speed camera. Residents of Sioux City had warned of the possibility of this type of accident involving the Redflex operated scam box, but profit always trumps safety.
Luckily the woman wasn’t hurt and as a bonus, the scamera is completely out of commission. This accident easily could have been much worse, however. When will Souix City, IA wake up and scrap this dangerous program?
