The Iowa City council has passed an ordinance that is unique in the United States.

The ordinance bans the use of traffic enforcement cameras, drones, and automatic license plate readers. It was approved by all seven council members.

It is unique because of the ban on surveillance drones in the city.

The council says it can reconsider the ordinance two years from now should it change its mind.
