A Red Light to Red Light Cameras In New Jersey Town

As my readers likely know, I am a vocal opponent to red light cameras.  I think they are generally unconstitutional and ineffective.

I have written on this subject before which you can see here:

Apart from the above, I am happy to say that as of this past Tuesday, February 18, 2014, the township of Brick in New Jersey has officially turned out the lights on the Red Light Camera program.  Here are some news articles on the subject you can check out here and here.

The township officials in Brick found that not only where these cameras ineffective at their stated goal of making the streets safer, they actually may have caused more accidents as rear end and “t-bone” collisions have increased since the red light cameras were installed.

I hope jurisdictions like Ohio and Brick Township New Jersey are a harbinger of things to come in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, and the experiment of the red light cameras will come to an end very soon.
