ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KSDK) – A St. Charles County councilman says senior citizens are being targeted.
Councilman Joe Brazil says they're getting calls warning that a free transportation program for senior citizens and disabled adults may go away if they support a ban on red light traffic cameras.
The St. Charles County Council will soon vote on whether to put a ban on red light cameras on the August ballot.
NewsChannel 5 talked to one senior citizen who got a call from a woman, claiming a funding crisis if the ban is approved.
All of the money that the city of St. Peters collects from the red light tickets goes to a transportation program for senior citizens and disabled adults.
We're still trying to get to the bottom of who is making the phone calls.
It's too early for St. Peters to say what would happen to the transportation program if the red light cameras were banned.
