The bill will be introduced after New Jersey's pilot program for red-light cameras expires in December.

EDISON - New Jersey's own red-light camera program is set to end in December and when it does, one lawmaker is looking to make sure drivers won't have to worry about fines from other states.

Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon wants to introduce a bill that would block the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission from providing other states information about drivers photographed by cameras. This would mean New Jersey drivers caught by a red-light camera out of state would not be able to be fined.

Some drivers feel the bill is a good thing because of the inaccuracy of the cameras.

Currently, 24 states have red-light or speeding cameras or both. Those states include New York, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
