67 year old Marla Leaf, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa is going to take down some BULLSHIT corrupt local bastards! I wanna compliment her…., hell, I wanna hug her and buy her a beer!

Check out the quick facts!

The cops son is the only one she could appeal to

the city has speed cameras on the federal highway Interstate 380

Speed camera’s run by Gatso USA — the private, for-profit company

semitrailers and government vehicles are not ticketed by the automated Cedar Rapids interstate cameras

The Iowa Department of Transportation ordered the speed cameras removed a year before Leaf was ticketed in February 2015, but Cedar Rapids has been allowed to keep then while it appeals.

The Iowa DOT requires speed cameras to be at least 1,000 feet from a posted speed reduction, but Larew said the camera is 896 feet beyond a sign that reduces the speed limit from 60 mph to 55 mph.

In the Iowa’s court system for over two years, Leaf has said she was not speeding, especially because of slippery road conditions that day.

Leaf’s case argues that it is unlawful to give the authority to assess speeding — something it says is police work — to the private camera company, Gatso.

Can the assessment of a municipal violation be done, Leaf’s attorney, James Larew, asked, “by the police department appointing a friend of theirs to serve as a hearing officer?”

Larew also argued that there is no valid safety reason for the camera system on Interstate 380 — also the site of alleged speeding violations by the other parties to the case. He said the cameras don’t issue tickets to semitrailers and government vehicles, calling the discrepancy arbitrary and a violation of equal protection.

The camera system works by focusing on back license plates, which government vehicles do not have in Iowa. Patricia Kropf, an attorney for the city, told the court that the excluded vehicles are “just not in the database that we need to use to do this in a cost-effective manner.”

“In March 2015, the Iowa [Department of Transportation] ordered 10 of 34 camera locations on primary highways and interstates around the state turned off, and another three moved or modified, stating they didn’t improve the safety of the highway system. After losing an appeal to the Iowa DOT director, the cities of Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Muscatine — three of six cities in Iowa with traffic cameras on state highways or interstates under Iowa DOT control — sued in June 2015 to keep the cameras on.”

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says 142 communities in the United States use automated speed camera systems and 420 have automated red light cameras.
