Yellow lights to be longer at some Denver intersections

The city of Denver will not add more red light cameras right now, and instead, will increase the time some lights are yellow.

Wednesday, the city council had been set to vote on a plan to add the red light cameras to intersections at 13th and Lincoln, 18th and Lincoln and Alameda and Santa Fe.

But Councilman Kevin Flynn recently sent city leaders an e-mail that changed their mind.

It basically said, cameras aren’t the answer to stopping red light runners. Instead, it’s longer yellow lights.

“We were going to induce violations and we were going to profit from our own engineering mistakes,” Councilman Flynn told FOX31.
