The City of St. Louis Red Light Camera Safety Program remains open and fully operational. That is the message from city counselor Patty Hageman.
Hageman says this week's court decision regarding the Ellisville program does not affect the City of St. Louis.
She advises that If you receive a red light camera ticket in the City of St. Louis, you need to pay it or contest it in court.
Unlike Ellisville, the City’s program allows vehicle owners to refute that they were driving at the time of the violation.
Hageman expects the state Supreme Court to eventually clarify procedures that cities must use for issuing citations.
Since the inception of red light safety cameras in the City of St. Louis, officials say violations at camera intersections have decreased by nearly two-thirds.
