Video Shows Red Light Car Crashes in 2011
The company operating red light cameras released a compilation of car crashes at intersections with red light cameras, including one in Florissant.
2011 has been a big year for red light cameras in Missouri.
A Missouri Department of Transportation study found red light cameras are so effective in reducing accidents that the city of Florissant changed its rules to allow more photo enforcement zones.
And in October, after a woman took her red light ticket to court, the Missouri Court of Appeals upheld the red light violation ordinances in the cities of Creve Coeur, Arnold, Florissant, Ellisville and Kansas City. (See a PDF of the court's 14-page opinion above in our gallery.)
In August, Florissant along with a number of other Missouri municipalities were named in a class-action lawsuit for the cameras.
American Traffic Solutions, the company that operates the red light cameras in the St. Louis area, released a collection of red light car crashes—a unique spin on typical end-of-the-year lists.
The crashes are caught on real red light cameras throughout Missouri, including one in Florissant.
