Colorado Governor Again Vetoes Bill to Ban Red-Light Traffic Cameras

June 6, 2016

For the second consecutive year, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has vetoed a bill that would have enacted a statewide ban on red-light traffic cameras.

Hickenlooper said he agrees with lawmakers that photo enforcement tools should only be used for public safety, not to generate income.

But he said a bill passed by the Legislature this year robbed municipalities of the power to decide whether to use the often-unpopular cameras.
