Corruption Probe into Red Light Camera Company

In light of a corruption investigation in Chicago, New Jersey’s main crusader against red light cameras has re-emphasized the need to end the controversial program in the Garden State.

Redflex, a red light camera vendor that handles many intersections in New Jersey, has been dropped by Chicago amid an investigation of corrupt business practices. Allegedly, the company treated a former city official to lavish gifts. The chairman of Redflex’s parent company resigned last week, reportedly due to the scandal.

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R) said Redflex and American Traffic Solutions, the two main vendors of red light cameras in New Jersey, were a primary reason for the failure of camera reforms set for debate earlier this week.

“These companies come out of the woodwork to pressure or contribute their way to thwarting any attempt to reform red light cameras in New Jersey,” said O’Scanlon, who believes the companies knowingly implemented the program improperly in terms of yellow light times.

Townsquare Media is still waiting on responses from Redflex and the state Department of Transportation.
