COLORADO – A bill introduced in the House Committee wants to repeal the use of red light cameras.  HB19-1099 is a bill that lawmakers have seen variations of over the last few years.

The committee will meet Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the appeal.

Currently, about 11 cities and towns use red light cameras. Colorado Springs recently installed three cameras at three different intersections.

One camera is on the south side of Platte Avenue near Citadel Mall. Another was installed at the intersection of Dublin and Academy Boulevard and a third at Lexington Drive and Briargate Boulevard.

These are three of the four intersections where the city planned to install traffic light cameras.
