A state appeals court in St. Louis has upheld the use of red-light cameras in Creve Couer County.In an opinion released Tuesday, the Missouri Court of Appeals' Eastern District sided with a previous St. Louis County Circuit Court ruling in favor of Creve Couer and its camera vendor, American Traffic Solutions Inc. The suit was brought by four people who received tickets for running red lights. The appeals court has previously upheld red-light camera use in Creve Couer brought by another ticket recipient, ruling in 2011 that the city's traffic-camera ordinance enacting civil penalties was similar to a parking ticket rather than a criminal violation.
So, if you get a parking ticket and do not pay it, the fees increase until you do pay it. I, on other hand have talked with several people who have received tickets in the mail based on red-light cameras. The cost of the ticket is $100 per violation. Upon calling the city of Creve Coeur, they have been informed that they must pay the fine or be subject to doubled fines and eventually a warrant for their arrest for failure to pay.
