Monmouth based Republican Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon has introduced a series of guidelines for testing the red light cameras across the state. Two weeks ago, the program was suspended because the timing of the amber lights associated with many of the cameras was not in accordance with the law.
O’Scanlon feels the location at which the speeds are measured and how those speeds are measured are equally critical to guarantee accurate amber-light timing. He’s been working with traffic experts and engineers to establish this methodology, it allows for manual or automated timing along with a variety of options for both methods.
“This seems to me to be the only truly fair way to go about these speed tests,” O’Scanlon stated. “These cameras are nothing more than a revenue generator, but when the yellow-light timing is not set according to the law, we’re not just bilking people for money, we’re bilking innocent people for money.”
