Missouri’s top transportation official has apparently come to a sad but not shocking conclusion about red-light cameras: Some communities are using the cameras as using it as a cash cow, not for public safety. 

“Whether speed or red-light running cameras, they are taking this and using it as a moneymaking, revenue-generating activity, and that’s not fair,” Kevin Keith, the interim director of the Missouri Department of Transportation, told the St.

Louis Post-Dispatch.”I can’t say everyone is doing it. We have enough indications that there are (communities) doing that. It gives us pause.”
