Pierre, SD (KELO-AM) Jim Melhaff is one of many, many South Dakotans who have gotten a speeding ticket thanks to those automated traffic cameras on I-29 in Sioux City, Iowa.
He says he feels he was targeted as an out-of-stater.
Melhaff testified Thursday at a state senate committee looking at ways to keep Sioux City from collecting such fines from out-of-staters. Even Governor Daugaard is on board to look at options.
Melhaff drew a laugh from the lawmakers when he said that he wrote 'Sioux City extorts money from out-of-state travelers' on the envelope, but they still cashed his check.
