Lead practice story

As of yesterday Iowa Highway patrol has ordered a ban of hand-held radar guns in Des Moines, Iowa.

The reason for this ban is because there is a concern that troopers could develop cancer from longterm exposure to the radiation waves emitted by the device. With this ban, there will be seventy radar guns that will be withdrawn from services. Because of the withdrawal, police officers will be using the radars that will be mounted on the outside of their cruisers.

The spokesman from the Iowa Highway patrol, ¬†Adam Berluti said, “The feeling here is to err on the side of caution until more is known about the issue, and that the whole situation is under review.”
