    According to a new policy “to prioritize the enforcement of safety-related traffic incidents and improve Denver Police Department response times to other calls,” Denver police will spend less time on enforcing traffic violations in the capital city. 

    In response to the news, many took to social media to whine about the government not taking crime seriously. Denver, of course, is one of the least safe cities in the nation. 

    But traffic laws are largely a taxation scheme, and the new policy targets minor infractions, not matters of public safety. 

    According to KDVR, the city's new policy means police officers in Denver are no longer pulling drivers over for "minor traffic infractions." The policy went into effect on May 1.

    That raises an important question: What other traffic enforcement mechanism should we revisit?

    In “the first in a series of posts centered around specific goals for the Liberty Movement of Colorado,” Brandon from Free State Colorado discusses the legislative history of Red Light cameras in Colorado, and renews calls to ban them.

    It’s an interesting read.
