Cities hope Mo. Supreme Court gives red-light camera clarity

ST. LOUIS – Cities across the state of Missouri are hoping the state's highest court will hear appeals regarding the validity of red-light camera ordinances.

The hope, according to a press release from the Missouri Municipal League, is that the Missouri Supreme Court will provide clear "guidance and direction" on conflicting decisions.

Red-light camera ordinances have been a hot debate in recent years with reversals and appeals across the St. Louis region, including Ellisville, Creve Coeur and St. Peters.
