St. Louis City Adds More Red Light CamerasPosted on
St. Louis City will install 11 more red light cameras this year, taking the total up to 62 cameras at 31 intersections in the City. The new red light cameras will be added regardless of the current legal dispute over whether the City’s red light camera ordinance violates state law.
St. Louis City Circuit Judge Mark Neill ruled in February 2012 that the City’s red light camera ordinance is void, but the City is challenging that ruling in the Missouri State Court of Appeals.
