Once Again...You Don't Have to Pay that Red-Light Camera Ticket


The Post-Dispatch has a front-page story this morning that reiterates what we here at Riverfront Times have reported on numerous occasions.

If you don't pay the red-light camera ticket from St. Louis, nothing will happen.

The city won't issue a warrant for your arrest. Instead, they'll send your name over to a Texas-based collection agency that is powerless to collect on the $100 fine and can't mess with your credit-rating if you don't pay the fine.
