Video: Worst St. Louis 2013 crashes captured by red light cameras
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The company behind St. Louis’ red light camera tickets has released a video compilation of the worst crashes in 2013. American Traffic Solutions monitors intersections in town with video cameras. The company documents every accident and moving violation. This video is their collection of the worst accidents in St. Louis over the past year.
American Traffic Solutions also collects data on area accidents and code violations. They say that drivers are becoming accustomed to the red light ticket system. As a result, the amount of red-light running violations is down over the past year. The company also says that the number of repeat offenders is down. A release from ATS states, “Eighty four percent (84%) of the vehicle owners who received and paid one red-light running citation since the program started in May 2007 never received another citation.”
The average number of citations issued per camera per month is down 60% in the six years since the cameras were first installed.
