Seeing Red? Vote YES To Ban Red Light Cameras
EDITORIAL CORNER BY ATTORNEY MICHAEL CARTER
As an attorney and a former municipal red-light camera judge, I know how unfair the use and abuse of Red Light Cameras has been. That’s why I helped lead an effort to have St. Charles County Council place the issue of Red Light Cameras on the ballot this Tuesday November 4th.

Red light cameras have been proven to increase accidents and are a money grab by the municipalities that use them -- resulting in an indirect tax. They violate our rights to privacy, are not accurate, and deny those who receive tickets proper due process.
A major national red light camera firm (the very one that the City of St. Peters contracted with) has also been charged with bribing elected public officials resulting in indictments, witnesses turning state and more. Missouri and especially St. Charles County is no place for Traffic Ticket Cameras.
This Tuesday we can say no to RED LIGHT CAMERAS by voting YES to ban them in St. Charles County. If you have any questions about the Red Light Camera issues call me at 636-916-4040.
