The camera’s installed on traffic lights in the State of New Jersey have been implemented by the NJ legislature as a “pilot program.” According to our legislature the red light cameras are not installed to increase the legislature bank accounts but for citizenry safety.
Notwithstanding, it seems that some of these lights turn from amber to red surprisingly fast, as opposed to, a timed pace as required under present legislation. Maybe to increase revenue?
If you have been issued a ticket for driving through a red light, via camera, check the timing of the actually light to see if you have a defense, namely improperly calibrated camera speed. Generally, a amber signal to red should be at least three seconds in a 25 miles per an hour speed zone. For each five mile-per-hour increase in vehicle speed, the minimum duration of the amber light must be increased by 0.5 seconds. For further information, give the New Jersey Department of Transportation a call located in Trenton.
