Kansas City Joins Red-Light Camera Bandwagon

Posted By on Wed, Apr 22, 2009 at 5:44 AM

Our sister city to the west, Kansas City, recently joined St. Louis and dozens of other Missouri cities that employ red-light cameras.

The Kansas City Star reports that cameras at the first intersection yielded 600 tickets in the first month of operation this March. All told, the cameras have tallied 900 citations to date -- with just 10 percent of them paid to date.

Kansas City now plans to install cameras at five more locations. Tickets in KC cost $113.50 compared to the somewhat cheaper $100 fine in St. Louis.
