ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) – Efforts to ban red light cameras in St. Charles County are picking up steam. County council member Joe Brazil plans to introduce a plan tonight to outlaw the cameras in municipalities and unincorporated areas.

If the council approves the idea it could be on the August 5th ballot. Right now St. Peters is the only town in St. Charles County using red light cameras.

    We understand some senior citizens are getting calls threatening to end the free transport system for seniors and disabled adults if the red light camera program is ended. This is among the dirtiest scams ever done by supporters of the for-profit camera companies and their for-profit city business partners.

    Is there no end to how dirty camera supporters will behave in order to keep their predatory money grab cameras? Evidently – NO.

    County residents need to call every County Council member to insist that the red light camera program ends. It is a money grab program, not a safety program. Red light cameras ticket mostly safe drivers for small technical fouls that endangered no one. It is a total scam. See our website for how it all works.

    It is time to get rid of this company all to gather. They are profiting off the laws of municipalities. I call it plain old modern day organized crime at its finest!! Enough said!
