A bill to make sure state lawmakers get the same tickets as everyone else advanced in the legislature on Thursday.
Colorado lawmakers are keeping their special license plates after all. But legislators are working on a fix to ensure they get traffic tickets – the issue that brought the matter up in the first place.
A bill to make sure state lawmakers receive the same kinds of citations as other motorists was amended Thursday and advanced out of the House Committee on Transportation and Energy by an 8-3 vote.
After learning a glitch in the system is preventing lawmakers from getting some photo radar tickets, Rep. Chris Holbert plans to introduce a bill in the next legislative session to eliminate special license plates.
A CBS4 Investigation has found that 100 Colorado state senators and representatives are apparently not getting photo radar tickets in Denver, and never have, due to a loophole in the system.
