NJ Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon Discusses Red Light Camera Legislature with Jim Gearhart [AUDIO]

With so much talk about the red light cameras in NJ, 13th Legislative District Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon called into Jim’s show this morning to discuss the legislature he is working to amend the rules of the red light pilot program.

O’Scanlon has a three part plan that he would like to implement for red light cameras that would include the following:

1. Extend the yellow light times by  1 second

2.  Stop a ticket from being issued until the opposing light turns green

3. Stop the cameras from issuing tickets for people who get caught up in making a right turn on red.

 

O’Scanlon also discussed the fact  he will be addressing the trend that many towns have begun handing out tickets for making a right turn on red before the motorist is stopped for a minimum of at least 3 seconds in some places. The Assemblyman says that if nothing else, the towns should at least be posting a notice to warn motorists of the timing.

NJ Senators  Nicholas Scutari (D-22nd District)  and 23rd Legislative District’s Michael Doherty (R) are also working with O’Scanlon on these measures.
