LAFAYETTE — The Lafayette city council has passed a new law that will affect drivers at red lights.

Drivers will now be fined $25 dollars if they do not come to a complete stop before they turn right at a stop light.

The council also decided to lower the penalty for those running through red lights at intersections equipped with a safe light camera.
