Denver City Council Unanimously Rejects Red Light Cameras, Photo Radar Van Expansion

The Denver City Council voted Wednesday night about whether to add more red light cameras. The council unanimously defeated the proposal.

“For the last 10 years I’ve been studying this issue, and I’m convinced that traffic engineer solutions will practically eliminate red light running, without having to give people tickets,” said Councilman Kevin Flynn told CBS4’s Kelly Werthmann.

The proposal would have added two additional red light locations and another photo radar van. Last month, the council delayed a vote on a resolution to expand Photo Radar and Red Light Services.

“Two intersections proposed have yellow light timings that are totally inadequate to allow traffic to safely stop,” Flynn said. (Three seconds at 13th Avenue & Lincoln Street, 3.5 seconds at 18th Avenue and Lincoln Street)
