A Greeley lawmaker wants the legislature next year to outlaw photo radar and red-light cameras, saying the devices have more to do with bringing in money for local communities than improving public safety.
State Sen. Scott Renfroe said he is bringing back his bill after the session opens Jan. 13 because of public support and a report that questions the effectiveness of red-light cameras.
A Democratic-controlled Senate committee killed a similar measure by Renfroe in the 2012 session. Democrats maintained control after the November election, but that hasn't deterred Renfroe.
"This is an issue we need to bring up and talk about," the Republican lawmaker said. "Hopefully, lawmakers will listen to the citizens and not just the cities that like the revenues."
