A new media campaign in support of red light cameras rolls out across Missouri today.

The advertisements are sponsored by a group calling itself the "National Coalition for Safer Roads."

David Kelly is the executive director.  He says there is a false impression that a majority of Missourians are opposed to red light cameras.

New research from the National Coalition for Safer Roads, a group advocating for the use of red light cameras, shows that 71 percent of Missouri's registered voters support the use of the cameras at dangerous intersections.

The study, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies also shows that 47 percent of Missouri's registered voters "strongly support" the cameras.
