Emergency Reading Scheduled for Hannibal’s Camera Ordinance
(Hannibal)--A Missouri Court of Appeals ruling this week will have a ripple effect on drivers caught by red-light cameras in Hannibal.
The Eastern District Panel ruled that Ellisville’s red-light ordinance conflicts with state statutes requiring points be assessed against drivers guilty of moving violations.
Hannibal City Attorney James Lemon plans to address the issue by submitting an ordinance revision Tuesday at a Special Call council meeting.
The revised ordinance means running a red light at one of the four camera-controlled intersections changes from a non-points to a points violation
