N.J. puts the brakes on red light cameras

Posted on Jun 19, 2012

Officials with the state Department of Transportation said today that 63 of the 85 red light cameras in the state — including all 19 in Newark — have not been tested to ensure yellow lights were timed in full accordance with state standards.

Tickets will not be issued at those 63 locations until it is determined whether the cameras are in compliance with the law. The other 22 cameras are in compliance.

The yellow lights are expected to stay lit one second for every 10 mph — 3.5 seconds in the case of an intersection where the speed limit is 35 mph.
