Calls for Immediate Termination of Red Light Camera Pilot Program
Senator Mike Doherty (R-23) said that accident data collected at intersections where red light cameras are in use show that both the number and total cost of accidents have increased since the cameras were installed. Doherty said that the data, released by the New Jersey Department of Transportation as part of a report on the state’s red light camera pilot program, should lead to an immediate termination of the program.
“Before our pilot program even started, we knew from the experiences of other states that red light cameras are great at generating revenue for the government but are bad at making dangerous intersections safer for drivers,” said Doherty. “It is absolutely no surprise that red light cameras in New Jersey have failed, just as they have everywhere else, in achieving their stated goal of improving driver safety. This complete failure to achieve that primary goal of increasing driver safety should lead to the immediate termination of the red light camera pilot program.”

"What was amusing is that once Stack did it, Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, also a Democrat, endorsed Christie the next day. It's almost like the two Democrats held hands and jumped into the deep end of the pool." - columnist Agustin Torres.- The Jersey Journal
