Ellisville votes to end red light cameras

ELLISVILLE, Mo. (KSDK) – The Ellisville City Council voted to get rid of red lights cameras Wednesday night.

A judge had already ordered the cameras to be shutoff – pending an appeal. The mayor said the city continued to get complaints about the cameras and didn't want to spend any more money on court cases.

One resident we spoke with after the vote is concerned about safety.

"While I wasn't a big fan of them, my concern now is what will happen when those cameras are gone," Rob Compton said. "Is the city going to provide increased police presence at the intersections that have been problems?"

American Traffic Solutions operated the cameras. According to the company, accidents have gone down 44 percent at Clarkson and Manchester since the cameras went up in 2009.
