A bill to limit the use of red light cameras in Colorado is going to the full House.

The House Transportation & Energy Committee approved the bill on a 10-3 vote Tuesday.

HB16-1231 would restrict automated vehicle identification systems to detect disobedience to traffic signals, but unlike a 2015 version of the bill that was vetoed by Gov. John Hickenlooper, red-light cameras would still be allowed in school zones, marked construction or repair zones, and on arterial roads, according to the bill's sponsor Rep. Lebsock, D-Thornton.
