TINTON FALLS, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey lawmaker who has opposed the state’s red light camera program says he has data to back up his claim that motorists are being unfairly targeted.
Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon will hold a news conference Monday.
The camera program was begun in 2009 to see if it could reduce the incidence of accidents at intersections.
Last June, state officials suspended the program for a month after determining that 63 of the cameras were not tested to ensure the yellow lights were timed properly. A federal class-action lawsuit has led to a $4.2 million settlement paid by the company that monitors the cameras.
The state announced in April that it had suspended plans to add more cameras until at least the end of next year.
