ST. LOUIS – The City of St. Louis will appeal a circuit court's decision to stop the red light camera, according to Maggie Crane, spokesperson for Mayor Francis Slay's office.
Tuesday, a Circuit Court judge has halted the city's red light camera program. The order prohibits the city of St. Louis from proceeding with any enforcement of the red light ticket ordinance, including payments for allegedly violations, sending collection letters related to red light camera tickets and sending any notices of violations and summons.
City Counselor Michael Garvin cites a June 2013 appeals court ruling that would allow the program to continue after fixing a problem.
According to Crane, the city wants clarification on the administrative operation of the cameras and possibly legislative clarification.
