Video Explains How NJ's Red Light Cameras Work

Video created by ATS, manufacturer of cameras used in Brick, other towns

One of the two vendors for New Jersey’s controversial red-light cameras has put out a video intended to provide a comprehensive look at the process — and clear up some persistent questions, according to a story posted on nj.com.

The video by American Traffic Solutions (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sUzzc-4Zuo) is scheduled to be advertised on NJ.com and New Jersey 101.5, two media outlets that have had criticisms of the automated traffic cops at nearly 60 New Jersey intersections in 25 New Jersey municipalities.

The more than eight-minute video comes as New Jersey is set to enter into the last year of a five-year red-light camera pilot program that began in 2009.

ATS has cameras in 18 towns, including Brick (including at the intersection of Chambers Bridge Road and Route 70), Jersey City, Linden and Piscataway.

Does this video help clear up any misconceptions you have about the cameras? Have you ever received a red light camera ticket? How do you feel about the amount of the fine and how the money is used (also explained in video)? Are you against the cameras or do you think they are an effective tool in reducing traffic accidents? Please let us know in Comments.

I recently got a yellow light traffic ticket in Brick. Very very unfair! If you stop short at a yellow, you can cause an accident, so no, I do not believe the traffic light cameras make it any safer. I believe it's all about bringing in $$ and they got $85 out of me last month. :/

This money grab will NOT go away. If Ducey did indeed say he was going to rid Brick of them, he was full of poo.
