Colorado May Ban Traffic Cameras [VIDEO]
Have you ever been ticketed from a red-light traffic camera? I’ve narrowly avoided it my share of times. Well, we may not need to worry about that ticket coming in the mail for very much longer.
9 News and the Coloradoan report a bill to ban traffic cameras in Colorado passed in a state Senate committee, and is now one step closer to being enacted.
Supporters of the bill say the cameras don’t improve traffic safety, and they’re just a cash cow for police departments. Opponents, including Fort Collins Police Chief John Hutto (seen in the video above), say they have solid evidence that traffic cameras are a valuable, effective tool.
How do you feel about traffic cameras? Is this bill a good idea? Let us know down in the comments!
