Louisiana House Passes Bill Banning Traffic Light Changers

May 4, 2004

The Louisiana House unanimously approved legislation to outlaw a device that can change some traffic signals from red to green, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune on April 16. A traffic-light changer is designed to allow police, fire and other emergency officials to clear intersections before they approach. But some drivers have managed to purchase them on the Internet for about $325, the newspaper reported. The bill is intended to deter anyone other than public safety and transit agencies from buying, selling or using the so-called mobile infrared transmitters, or MIRTs.
