( KMOV.com )– A circuit judge has ruled that the city of St. Louis can no longer enforce red light camera tickets.
The decision comes more than two months after attorneys who represent two St. Louis women filed a petition to uphold a previous judgment to stop the red-light camera tickets.
St. Louis officials and those against red-light camera tickets had until the end of January to file additional submissions in the case over the legality of the cameras.
After the new submissions, the judge on Tuesday ruled the city can no longer ask alleged violators to pay their tickets and collection letters can no longer be sent for red-light camera tickets.
The city said it had earned $22,000 a day from the cameras, a third of which goes to American Traffic Solutions. In 2013, the city says $6 million were collected in fines.
Red-light cameras were first installed in St. Louis in 2007 and in early 2013 were deemed legal by the courts.
The cameras have been a source of controversy for several municipalities in the St. Louis area, with appeals and reverses in St. Louis, Ellisville, Creve Coeur and St. Peters, among others.
According to the Missouri Municipal League, more than 30 cities in the state have ordinances tied to red-light cameras.

Red light cameras are just a way to snatch money from people. That's just sick. F*ck America. I'm moving to Canada. Good riddance!
