       Missouri State Senator Jim Lembke admits he's not a lawyer but says he's getting advice from lawyers and other senators on this one.  He's advising people to ignore their red light camera tickets.

      It's his contention the tix are treated as infractions, like a parking ticket, and therefore can't he says result in a warrant being issued. 

      Some cities have differing views on this.  At least one told us they can issue warrants for the vehicle's owner for failing to appear in court.  I can imagine that anyone thinking about this while staring at their ticket might be a little worried about ignoring it.
