ELLISVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County town is ending use of red-light cameras.

The Ellisville City Council voted 4-2 Wednesday to terminate the city’s contract with American Traffic Solutions for cameras at three intersections. The company says accidents at those intersections are down 44 percent. But Mayor Adam Paul says residents oppose the cameras, and he says they have caused bad publicity.

Several court cases have been filed over the legality of red-light cameras. Ellisville stopped issuing tickets for violations caught by the cameras three months ago, citing an appellate court ruling, but kept the cameras in place.
