St. Peters Adding Red-Light Cameras at Intersection of Jungermann and McClay

The city now has eight red-light photo enforcement cameras throughout the city.

More red-light cameras will be going up in St. Peters.

After adding red-light photo enforcement cameras in the summer of 2012 at the intersection of Mexico and Spencer Road, the Suburban Journals reports plans to add another set of cameras at westbound McClay Road and Jungermann Road.

The Suburban Journals reports the intersection, which has a Walgreen's and QuikTrip as on each side of McClay, was chosen because of a high number of crashes. In the last three years, the two intersection had a total of 120 crashes, 17 that resulted in injuries. According to a press release, nearly one out of three traffic crashes in the St. Peters were associated with motorists violating stops signs, electric signals and following too closely.

The addition of the McClay/Jungermann camera gives St. Peters red-light cameras at:

  • Mexico Road at Cave Springs Boulevard
  • Mexico Road at Jungermann Road
  • Mexico Road at Spencer Road
  • Mid Rivers Mall Drive at Suemandy Road
  • Mid Rivers Mall Drive at Grand Teton Road eastbound
  • Mid Rivers Mall Drive at Grand Teton Road westbound
  • Mid Rivers Mall Drive at Willott Road
  • Jungermann Road at McClay Road

St. Peters Police Officers review the photos and video evidence of red-light incidents and authorize notices of violations to be issued to the vehicle operators. The cameras provide a photograph of the driver, the vehicle’s license plates and a 12-second video of the violation.

This is wonderful news. I enjoy reading negative Comments from those who routinely run Red Lights in and around Saint Peters. I would suggest that Cameras' be installed at the intersection of Salt Lick and Mexico Road.

Mr. Carter, now when you run these intersections it is going to cost you, no not the life of some innocent person (s), but a cool $100.00. So pull your head out of that Bull's behind and start driving smart and safe.

I live just off of Mexico, the peolpe that travel that road in out of order. I try and do the speed limit, at most go over 5 mile a hour. Some folks that ride on that road must do 50, 55, some 60. And all St. Peters is concern with is red lights. Even the cops fly on that road, and of course they are not going anywhere. But, if you complain that is what they will say.
