Brentwood Mayor Wants Red Light Cameras Turned Back On

BRENTWOOD, Mo. (KMOX) – They were there, then were removed, but now red light cameras could be about to return to Brentwood.

Mayor Pat Kelly said nothing is set in stone, but he is having the city staff investigate what needs to be done to get a new contract to replace the expired one with American Traffic Solutions.

While some Aldermen strictly oppose the cameras, Kelly’s convinced they work. “It really did reduce the number of red light violations that we had and in doing so we actually issued very few tickets.”

Kelly said that’s one reason it might be difficult to get a company to come back, because they don’t generate enough revenue.

Over the six or so years the cameras were in place the city made about $8,000 a year.
