Springfield to remove red light cameras
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - Springfield city officials said the city will remove its long-dormant red-light cameras.
The city stopped using the cameras four years ago after a Missouri Supreme Court ruling the city was mishandling tickets issued after red light violations.
The city announced in a news release Monday that American Traffic Solutions will remove outdated and unusable equipment at 11 intersections in mid- to late September.
The process is expected to take no more than one business week.
The equipment that will be removed includes cameras, lasers, poles and pole bases.
