St. Peters to Vote on Resolution to Turn Off Red Light Cameras
ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOX) - Red-light cameras in St. Peters could be turned off next week under a resolution up for a vote at tonight’s Aldermanic meeting.
Mayor Len Pagano is asking Aldermen to suspend the use of the cameras, until the Missouri Supreme Court rules if they’re legal in the state.
The request comes after conflicting lower court rulings, including one that declared St. Peters’ cameras were illegal.
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the St. Peters case, as well as one challenging St. Louis’ red-light camera ordinance.
Meanwhile, the St. Charles County Council has placed a red-light camera ban on the November ballot, a ban that would cover cities within the county.
If Aldermen pass the resolution tonight, St. Peters will turn off its cameras on Monday.
