Traffic was heavy over the weekend as a result of a snowfall that took place on Friday that covered the roadways.
Flights were cancelled across the area as the snow continued to fall heavily in the region. Chicago and Minneapolis were just a few of the cities that flights were cancelled to and from northern Iowa. A multiple-vehicle accident was also reported as a result of the weather conditions.
Levels of snow rose to eight inches and also caused the closure of many schools. The heaviest snowfall was in northern Iowa into Illinois. Officials at Chicago O’Hare stated that nearly 700 of their flights have been cancelled.
The Iowa City Council has recently met again in order to discuss the installation of cameras at traffic lights at major intersections in the city.
The council had a second meeting on whether or not the cameras should be installed at 10 different intersections last week.
The decision has been somewhat controversial because some think that the system is just a way for the camera companies to make money while others think that the cameras could be a potential hazard.
Recent literature has suggested that the use of red light cameras increases the risk of rear-end collisions. Iowa City officials have stated that the addition of the cameras will enhance safety for pedestrians and motorists in the area. The council voted 4-3 in the second proposal vote.
