On March 5, 2014, the City Council of Ellisville, Missouri voted to turn off its red light cameras and quit issuing red light camera tickets.
According to the company that installed the red light cameras, the cameras helped reduce accidents by 44% at three intersections in Ellisville where red light cameras were being used. According to the Ellisville mayor, the city decided to shut down the cameras because of bad publicity and negative reactions from residents.
The Ellisville red light cameras have produced an average of $200,000 per year in revenue for the city since they were installed in 2009.
