Bill (HB 19-1099) introduced in Colorado legislature to ban red light cameras

A bill has been introduced into the Colorado General Assembly to ban red light cameras in the state.

Representative Stephen Humphrey, a Republican from Weld County, and Representative Jovan Melton, a Democrat from Arapahoe County, are sponsoring the bill in the State House.

If passed, HB 19-1099 would not allow any city, county or municipality in Colorado to use red light cameras to issue traffic citations. It would also not allow the department of public safety to use “automated vehicle identification systems” to detect people who are speeding in construction zones.
