Have you ever been caught by one of those pesky red light or speed enforcement cameras? Did you have your siren and lights on at the time? If not, you may include yourself in the company of at least some of the 26 Cedar Rapids, Iowa, police officers who have been busted by red light and speed cameras. It seems that the cops have been photographed running red lights and speeding in America's heartland, and not always with good reason.
According to the GazetteOnline, the 26 officers snapped breaking the traffic laws as of last week are all under the eye of Cedar Rapids Police Chief, Greg Graham. Reportedly, five of the potential violations were deemed not to be actual violations; that is, officers were operating in "legitimate" fashion, such as tailing a speeder at the speeder's speed. In six other instances, the officers were issued letters of discipline because they did not have their lights or sirens on when they should have. Others are still under review.
