An appeal is planned after an eastern Missouri judge tossed out a lawsuit challenging the use of red-light cameras.
Jeff Brunner filed the suit last year against the city of Arnold and American Traffic Solutions, the Arizona firm that runs the city's red-light cameras. Brunner sued over a $94.50 fine for running a red light, arguing the cameras violate state law and are unconstitutional.
A Missouri appeals court has upheld an ordinance in the suburban St. Louis city of Creve Coeur that imposes a $100 fine when cameras catch vehicles running red lights.
The Eastern District appeals court on Tuesday rejected an argument that the Creve Coeur ordinance violates due process rights by ticketing a vehicle's owner without knowing if the owner was driving when the vehicle ran a red light.
