Red-light camera

According to KMOX, Judge Mark Neill has thrown out red-light camera laws in St. Louis.

The 22nd Judicial Circuit Court judge ruled there was no state legislation to enable the red-light cameras in the city.  The cameras, which earned the city approximately $3 million each year in revenue through $100 fines, are no longer valid in the City of St. Louis due to Neill's ruling.  

Officials from the city have not commented on whether the ruling will be appealed.

Good for Judge Neil. Those cameras are nothing but a rip off. Who ever thought that was a good idea should be FIRED!
There are too many senarios where the wrong person is acused of traffic violations according to the mechanical eye of the flawed cameras. Congratulations to the crooks who installed and is proffiting from them. Booooooo! to the knuckle head city authorities who forced them upon the general public.
