Issue: Cameras to capture good, bad and ugly on Kootenai County’s section of I-90/Amy Cannata, Spokesman-Review
More Info: Planners with the Idaho Transportation Department, highway districts and cities are considering installing cameras and weather sensors along I-90 from the Washington state line into Coeur d’Alene, as well as adding message boards on the freeway and nearby arterials. The 18 cameras would monitor traffic and could be used to help emergency crews and identify congestion and poor road conditions. Eight message boards would warn drivers about traffic jams, construction, Amber alerts and severe weather.
Question: Is there a down side to this?
