St. Louis City to install red light cameras
St. Louis, MO – St. Louis City plans to install ten cameras at various intersections to nab drivers who run red lights.
The cameras will be put at intersections where accidents are frequent. Likely locations include Kingshighway & Natural Bridge, which had 76 collisions last year; Kingshighway near Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where 53 collisions occurred; and Forest Park & Grand Avenues, where 94 crashes happened last year.
A private company, American Traffic Solutions, will get about $31 of every $100 ticket. The city gets the rest.
The cameras could start going up in February. Drivers will get a 30-day warning period when the program starts.
Florissant and Arnold are among the St. Louis area communities that have installed the cameras already.
