Senator Michael Doherty (R-23) issued the following statement in response to reports that red light cameras that had previously been suspended pending the completion of timing studies have been recertified for use:
“I continue to believe that the red light camera program is misguided and will push forward with legislation to ban the use of red light cameras in New Jersey.
“The certification of the 63 red light cameras in question does nothing to address the propriety of the program as a whole.
“More than 4,000 people have signed my online petition supporting our effort to ban red light cameras in New Jersey. I urge people to join our effort by signing the petition at http://senatenj.com/cameras.”
Doherty is the sponsor of legislation, S-1952, that would ban the use of red light cameras in New Jersey.
