Earlier this year, a St. Louis judge ruled that the city can no longer enforce red light cameras.  Too bad, the city admitted in court case involving two St. Louis women that it earned approximately $22,000 a day in fines and in 2013 collected about $6 million.  The cameras were installed back in 2007 and in 2013 were deemed legal by the courts.  I got caught in one of those money traps in Ohio. While driving in a left turn lane, the car in front of me paused just long enough during the turn that it left me a half-second in the intersection to long.  When I entered the intersection, the light was green but turned red just as I crossed in front of the camera.  That did it.   A month later here comes the $100 ticket.  The driver is front caused the problem and I get the ticket.  If a police officer had witnessed the incident, I would be willing to bet there would have been no stop and no ticket.  It’s just traffic flow.  Now there is news that voters in St. Charles County Missouri in November will go to the polls in an effort to ban the cameras.  Of course, the camera supporters say they save lives by making people think twice about crashing red lights.  Opponents say that the communities are looking for cash.  It’s a pure money grab and it violates civil rights.  There are about 30 cities in Missouri that have ordinances tied to red light cameras.  It’s time for voters to stand up and vote no on this profit machine designed to fill city coffers and take away a citizen’s due process.Red Light Cameras
