DENVER — A bill introduced at the Colorado Legislature Friday targets those unpopular red light cameras in the state.

State Sen. Scott Renfroe (R-Eaton) is sponsoring the bill that would ban red light cameras at intersections and those equally unpopular photo radar cameras designed to catch drivers speeding.

Technically the bill eliminates the use of “automated vehicle identification systems for traffic law enforcement. Read the bill here.

It already has support on both sides of the aisle and in both the Senate and House.

A similar bill was proposed two years ago, but it quickly died in committee.

Renfroe says there is more support for the bill this time around.

The Colorado Municipal League is once again the bill’s main opponent.
