Warren Township has approved a resolution in support of Senator Michael Doherty’s legislation to ban the use of red light cameras in New Jersey. Members of the township’s committee unanimously approved the resolution in support of Doherty’s legislation, S-1952, which would prevent new towns from adding red light cameras and shut down cameras in towns that already use them.
“While some towns are enamored with the idea that they can use red light cameras to turn their residents into cash cows, it’s clear that others like Warren Township are willing to take a stand for what is right,” said Doherty. “Citizens across New Jersey should demand that their local elected officials follow the lead of Warren Township and say ‘no’ to red light cameras.”
The resolution approved by the Warren Township Committee states that the township “believes that the use of red light cameras can be dangerous and unreliable, and that such cameras are not effective tools in furthering traffic safety.”
Doherty has launched an online petition is support of his legislation to ban red light cameras in New Jersey that has been signed 5,000 times. The petition is located at http://senatenj.com/cameras.
“As we build support for the red light camera repeal effort through petition signatures and resolutions approved by local governments, we increase pressure on the Legislature to put my bill up for a vote,” added Doherty. “If you want to help get rid of red light cameras that are already active or want to prevent them from showing up in your town, I urge you to sign and share the online petition and demand that your local officials support my legislation.”
