Now that the stateâ€™s red light camera program officially ended last week, the Traffic Safety Coalition (TSC) has released a video urging viewers to ask state legislators to make a New Yearâ€™s resolution to make New Jerseyâ€™s red light camera program permanent, as Larry Higgs writes for NJ Advance Media for NJ.com. The video warns that driving will be more dangerous without the red light cameras, Higgs notes.
There are two bills seeking to make the red light camera program permanent in the state, while one bill seeks to end it, Higgs reports. One bill would make the red light camera program permanent if and when it is approved by the stateâ€™s Department of Transportation, Higgs writes in another article, and there is another suggestion that if the program continues, the cameras should be high-resolution ones so that drivers can be clearly identified before they are ticketed.
