NJ Clears Way for Red-light Camera Tickets

NJ Clears Way for Red-light Camera Tickets
Decision follows review of yellow light duration standards.

New Jersey towns can resume issuing tickets generated by red-light cameras, even for violations that occurred when the lights were under study.

The state Transportation Department says all 21 towns where the pilot program was suspended last month have shown the yellow lights were timed to standards.

The DOT on Wednesday announced the yellow lights met the minimum duration required under the law. Had they not, the DOT would have removed the intersection from the red-light camera program.

Towns can keep issuing tickets and issue summonses for violations that occurred during the suspension period.
