CLIVE, Iowa (AP) — The number of accidents at Clive intersections monitored by red-light cameras was twice as high in 2012 as it was four years earlier, but the number of accidents citywide dropped 22 percent over the same period, according to data provided to the City Council.

The accident statistics come amid a long debate in Clive over use of the cameras, which were discontinued in July but were restarted Monday because of concerns about what the halt would mean to the Des Moines suburb's budget. As part of a deal to again use the traffic cameras, the City Council promised to discontinue them on June 30, 2014.
