Thu, 07 Nov 2013 14:23:58 GMT — The future of red-light cameras in Missouri communities could be in jeopardy after a state appeals court panel ruled that most municipal ordinances governing the cameras are not enforceable. A Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District panel said Tuesday that Ellisville's red-light ordinance conflicts with state statutes governing moving violations and assessing points against drivers. Although the town's ordinance considers red-light violations caught by the cameras as non-moving, the judges said running a red light is clearly a moving violation under state law. An attorney for four couples who challenged Ellisville's ordinance says the ruling has broad implications statewide. A lawyer representing the company that operates the red-light cameras disagrees with the court's decision and predicts the matter will ultimately be decided by the Missouri Supreme Court.
