Red Light Camera Settlement Reached, Partial Refunds Expected
Close to a half-million New Jersey motorists who have been ticketed due to red light cameras could be eligible for a partial refund under the terms of a class-action settlement announced Friday.
The Star-Ledger of Newark reports the $4.2 million settlement works out to a $6 refund on tickets ranging from $85 to $140.
Motorists are eligible if they received tickets before July 25 in the cities of Jersey City, Linden and Rahway; the boroughs of Glassboro, Palisades Park and Roselle Park; and the townships of Brick, Deptford, East Brunswick, East Windsor, Gloucester, Lawrence, Monroe, Piscataway, Pohatcong, Union, Wayne and Woodbridge.
The settlement only applies to cameras operated by American Traffic Solutions.
New Jersey suspended the pilot program in June, until municipalities could re-certify their yellow light timing.
