(KMOV) – A bill in St. Charles County calls for an election to amend the current charter to prohibit red light cameras.
The bill will be introduced at a County Council meeting April 28 by District 2 Council member Joe Brazil.
"We have proof from statistics shown to us in St. Peters that traffic accidents have increased about 30%, so it's not a safety concern,” said Brazil. “It's more of a hazard.”
If the ordinance is adopted by the council, the amendment would be placed on the August 5 ballot.
