(KMOV) -- After hundreds lined up on Thursday to pay fines for a Pine Lawn speeding ticket that many were unaware of having, News 4 wanted to find out the story behind the cameras.

News 4’s Sharon Reed talked with St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney about the camera which he believes are deceptive and the motive is clear.

“It’s a money grab, that’s all it is; simple straight answer,” Bob McCullough said.

He adamantly disagrees with the use of speed cameras.

“There is a big difference between legal and right. They’re not always the same thing, I just don’t see it as law enforcement,” McCullough said.

Missouri law says speed cameras are enforceable in work zones, school zones and travel safe zones.

News 4 located two such cameras. One was at Natural Bridge and Rossiter, while the other was in a school zone near the intersection of Jennings Station and Dowler.
