Some Colorado Lawmakers Want to Put a Stop to Red-Light Camera Devices

Would you like to see red-light cameras go away? Some Colorado lawmakers want to put a stop to red-light cameras. A Colorado bill that was introduced this week would take control away from cities and towns using the automated traffic enforcement devices. If the bill were to pass, Colorado would join several other states that have already prohibited the use of the red-light camera devices.

“I think when you look at the role of government within this, we should be about safety and not about generating revenue,” Weld County Republican Sen. Scott Renfroe, the sponsor of the bill, said Friday. “And I think the data is really starting to fall out that red-light cameras are more of a revenue source than increase of safety.”

The Colorado Municipal League, which represents more than 250 communities in the state, opposes the proposed legislation, saying municipalities should decide own their own what to do about red-light cameras.
