Late last month, NJDOT announced six municipalities to join in a red light camera pilot program created last year. Edison, Jersey City, Lawrence, Linden, New Brunswick, and Wayne will install cameras at locations with a demonstrated history of violations and crashes related to red light running.
Route 1 and Plainfield Ave. in Edison is one of the intersections to get a red light camera. 70 red-light citations were issued and 113 accidents occurred at the intersection last year
In 2009, the DOT will designate additional municipalities from each region for participation in the program. Municipalities are encouraged to apply for designation.
