    Yay money grab. Maybe if the speed limits werent set so low that everyone was going faster than them, 'speeding' wouldnt be so much of a problem.

    I don't think they are so low. If you are in such a hurry, leave sooner. I don't see a problem with these cameras.

    What are the odds they put them where the speed limit changes so they can get more money.

    Who can be blamed for these? Did the Des Moines city council have to approve these? I'd like to voice my opposition.

    All we have to do is not pay the citation and it will cost the city money. Once it becomes a burden on the City budget they will be forced to shut down the program.

    It sounds to me like they just raised the speed limit to 70 MPH

    Des Moines police say they will install speed cameras along Interstate 235 that after a month's grace period will issue citations to motorists traveling more than 10 mph over the limit.The cameras will be installed Aug. 22 on the freeway between 56th Street and Polk Boulevard. They will track motorists in the four eastbound lanes, where the speed limit is 60 mph.

    Considering everyone's been driving that already and you'll get a nice big ticket for going 1mph over it, its definitely not a 'raise'.

    There is a curve right there and it is dangerous when there is a stalled motorist or an accident ahead. Great spot for a speed camera.

    Don't tell alarson that.

    Just because alarson is a skilled enough driver to be doing 70+ in downtown Des Moines on I-235 does not mean every single driver on I-235 is skilled enough to be driving at that speed. That's the big part alarson tends to forget about.
