ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) — The mayor of a suburban St. Louis town is seeking a temporary ban on use of red light cameras.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano wants aldermen to impose a moratorium beginning Monday. Pagano cited confusion among residents about whether they should pay red-light tickets issued by St. Peters amid conflicting court rulings.

The Missouri Supreme Court agreed earlier this week to hear a challenge from St. Peters of lower court rulings that said an earlier version of the St. Peters camera program conflicted with state law.

Meanwhile, the St. Charles County Council is seeking voter approval in the November election of a ban on red-light cameras. The ban would apply to cities and unincorporated areas.
