Lawrence Considers Dropping Red Light Cameras

In light of an increase in the number of rear-end accidents on Route 1 at Bakers Basin in following the installation of red light cameras, Lawrence Township’s town manager is considering removing the cameras all together.

Town Manager Richard Krawczun tells the Times Of Trenton he is planning a meeting with American Traffic Solutions to discuss the report and possibly ending the experimental program. “It’s this simple: If it doesn’t work, and it’s not safer, we shouldn’t do it,”  Krawczun explained to the Times Of Trenton. Part of the reason the Township agreed to participate was to increase safety at the busy intersection.

Police Chief Daniel Posluszny told the town’s council at a budget hearing last week that “the numbers have gone up on rear-end accidents and it’s a concern.

The camera is expected to make $360,000 from violations this year according to the Times of Trenton. In its first year ending in November, 2012 there were 8,848 tickets  issued for a total of $659,227 in fines.

The town has a five-year contract with American Traffic Solutions. There is, however, a clause allowing either side to discontinue the program upon mutual agreement according to the Times of Trenton.
