EDISON - Pat Doyle received an $85 ticket from the city of Newark. A video shows that he stopped at a red light while another driver drove through. Doyle says he has no idea how the camera could have made the mistake. He says he tried to explain his problem to Newark police and prosecutors for two days, but no one would listen.
Kane in Your Corner reached out to the Newark Police Department, who refused to speak on camera. A spokesperson issued an e-mail that said "The ticket that was issued in this matter was dismissed...because the wrong vehicle was inadvertently issued the ticket."
Last month, Kane in Your Corner reported on another red light camera issue in Newark. Several motorists were improperly ticketed for running a light on New Year's Eve after a video shows that a Newark police officer waved them through.
The New Jersey Motorists Association says these kind of mistakes are unacceptable and they question whether Newark police are living up to the state's red light law.
