Missouri voters could weigh in on red light cameras

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Missouri voters may soon get the chance to weigh in on red light cameras.

Wednesday, the Missouri House of Representatives gave initial approval to a proposal that would ask voters whether red light cameras should be banned. The question would be placed on the November ballot.

In 2015, the Missouri Supreme Court struck down red light camera laws in St. Louis City, Moline Acres and St. Peters. St. Louis City stopped issuing red light camera tickets shortly after.

Supporters of the measure say the cameras are used for revenue collection instead of safety on the road, while opponents say they have made roads safer.
