NEWARK - Drivers ticketed by New Jersey's red-light cameras last year are closer to getting some of their money back.

A preliminary settlement was filed yesterday in a lawsuit that claims the lights didn't give drivers ample time to hit the brakes.

Under terms of the settlement, Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions would set up a $4.2 million fund to pay plaintiffs. The company isn't admitting any wrongdoing or liability.

Anyone who was ticketed before August 2012 in any of 18 towns and paid the $85 fine would be eligible to receive money back. A judge must approve the agreement.

The towns are Brick, Deptford, East Brunswick, East Windsor, Jersey City, Lawrence, Linden, Glassboro, Gloucester Township, Monroe, Palisades Park, Piscataway, Pohatcong, Rahway, Roselle Park, Union, Wayne and Woodbridge.
