“The fact that is (the lawsuit) specifically names New Jersey is troubling,” said Assemblyman Declan O’Scxanlon (R-Red Bank), a critic of the red light camera program. “It shouldn’t surprise us. The companies are not about safety or improving traffic, they are about the almighty dollar and they will stop at nothing to get it.  We can’t trust anything they say as they work to game the political system to ensure their lucrative public contracts are safe.”

Fired Redflex salesman Aaron Rosenberg claimed he was forced to cover long-standing practices of “providing government officials with lavish gifts and bribes.” His lawsuit states that during his tenure Redflex “bestowed gifts and bribes on municipal officials in dozens of municipalities within, but not limited to the following states: California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia.”

O’Scanlon said there is a federal probe already underway and he is calling on those involved to examine any claims involving New Jersey.

In a published report, a top Redflex official said those who violated company policy are no longer employed with the firm and corrective action has been taken.
