The red-light cameras at 39th and Southwest Trafficway flash drivers more than any of the 16 other cameras.

Kansas City Police Chief Jim Corwin released a report on his blog showing that overall, fewer tickets are being issued (although the cameras at 27th and Southwest Trafficway saw a 60 percent spike from when they were activated in June 2009).

Here are the five intersections issuing the most tickets (between January 10 and March 31).
1. 39th and Southwest Trafficway -- 1,641 tickets issued
2. 59th and 71 Highway --1,238 tickets issued
3. Red Bridge and 71 Highway -- 1,131 tickets issued
4. Gregory and 71 Highway -- 1,000 tickets issued
5. 55th and 71 Highway -- 992 tickets issued

Corwin concludes, "Overall, though, the cameras seem to be having an

impact on red light-running behavior. Tickets have dropped by 58 percent

total."

There is a push to ban the cameras. The Missouri Senate endorsed an amendment from Sen. Jim Lembke

(a Republican from South St. Louis County) -- 23-8 -- that would ban the cameras as part of a

larger transportation bill.
