MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Some cities install cameras to their stop lights. The cameras are meant to take footage of vehicles that run red lights. The owner of the vehicle would then receive a traffic violation.

One bill in the House of Representatives wants to make sure municipalities in Alabama do not pay for these cameras to be installed.

A host of representatives from districts in north Alabama are sponsors of this bill.

HB221 states that it would prohibit any municipality from adopting an ordinance that would provide for these stop light cameras.

It also states that if the bill passes it would dissolve any existing ordinances that do allow for these cameras.

 Representatives that sponsor this bill include those that represent districts 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 18, 22, 26, 27, 29.
