Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.B. No. 2217 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TRAFFIC CONTROL,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to permit the driver of a vehicle to safely proceed through an intersection in which a defective or malfunctioning traffic-control device fails to detect the vehicle and stays in the red signal stage through two cycles of the traffic-control device.
