JEFFERSON CITY – In each legislative session the past four years, lawmakers have heard attempts to eliminate red-light cameras or limit their fees, only to never see a single resolution pass.  This year, a bill has been introduced that would seek to make getting caught running a red light on camera as punishable as being pulled over by a police officer for the same offense.
