DENVER (AP) – For the second consecutive year, Gov. John Hickenlooper has vetoed a bill that would have enacted a statewide ban on red-light traffic cameras.

Hickenlooper said Thursday he agrees with lawmakers that photo enforcement tools should only be used for public safety, not to generate income.

But he said a bill passed by the Legislature this year robbed municipalities of the power to decide whether to use the often-unpopular cameras.

Hickenlooper vetoed similar legislation last year.
