Waterloo, Iowa: Red light cameras catch 151 over first weekend

In the coming days, 151 motorists will receive mail with pictures of their vehicles running red lights around town.

The city’s red light cameras went on line last week, and between Friday and Monday the system documented 151 stoplight violations, said Maj. Joe Leibold.

Seated in front of his computer at the Waterloo Police Department, Leibold pulls up one of the cases and is able to roll video of vehicle dashing through an intersection.

“The light’s solid, and he’s doing 66” mph, Leibold said. “It’s amazing the numbers you see.”
