Colorado lawmakers are again considering banning red light cameras.

Current law allows red-light cameras at every traffic signal in the state. The bill restricts the use of “automated vehicle identification systems” to detect when drivers are disobeying traffic signals.

There are some limits to where the cameras could be restricted: school zones, marked construction or repair zones and on arterial roads. The exceptions were made to satisfy Gov. Hickenlooper who vetoed a version of the bill last year.

The measure now goes to the state Senate.
