St. Louis City can continue to issue tickets through the red light camera system.
An appeals court ruled that the system is constitutional. This overturns a ruling issued last year. The court said red light cameras allow the city to regular traffic safety and that is a power given to the police department. The ruling acknowledged that the tickets give the city a financial benefit, but that does not detract from the increase in public safety.
The city says there has been an 80 percent reduction in citations at some intersections since the cameras were first installed.
