Another Update to the New Jersey Red Light Camera Mess

It looks like the red light cameras in New Jersey are coming back on.  Gov. Christie said that all of the red light cameras in New Jersey have been certified and that townships can no resume issuing traffic tickets based on the intersection snapshots the devices take.

NJDOT Orders Inspections of Red Light Cameras

It was only five weeks ago that the state suspended most of the 85 cameras after one woman’s appeal of her ticket proved that the devices were not properly inspected.  As I mentioned in previous posts, the timing of the cameras was off by up to two seconds (allegedly) in some instances.

Tickets from the cameras which couldn’t be proven as certified weren’t issued during the five weeks that the state was ironing out the mess that ensued.  The New Jersey Department of Transportation directed townships to conduct speed surveys at the intersections in question and calibrate the cameras accordingly.   On Tuesday night, Gov. Christie asserted that all of the cameras had been properly calibrated, inspected, and thus, certified.

According to a New Jersey Department of Transportation spokesperson, the DOT would be giving guidance to townships on how to proceed.

What is unclear however, is how the State or Township which have issued tickets from the previously non-certified cameras will proceed in regards to those tickets issued pre-certification.

Steve Carellas, a New Jersey motorist’s rights activist, was quoted by as saying that the tickets will be dismissed.   There is also a class action suit against 21 of the towns which issued tickets resulting from the use of non-certified cameras.  The suit is said to be continuing forward.
