Two Area Towns Quietly Operate Speed Cameras

COOL VALLEY, Mo. (AP) — Two St. Louis County towns have operated speed cameras in virtual obscurity since late last year despite a state rule limiting the use of such cameras.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cool Valley and Berkeley placed their portable speed cameras a few feet off the streets they are targeting. That puts them outside the right of way — and outside the reach of Missouri Department of Transportation rules.

MoDOT in January confined the use of speed cameras on state-controlled roads and highways to school, construction and Travel Safe zones.
