Missouri Supreme court rules against red light camera programs

(KTRS) – Red light camera programs in St. Louis and St. Peters are unconstitutional according to the Missouri Supreme Court.

The justices said the program places the burden onto the defendant for them to prove that they were not operating the vehicle at the time of the ticket. St. Louis City continued to issue tickets through the program and put collected fines into an escrow account. It is unclear what will happen to those funds after the ruling.

The city attorney argued that the city assumes the vehicle owner is the person behind the wheel.
