Red-light camera settlement offered in NJ (8/5/13)

TRENTON - Nearly 500,000 drivers in 18 New Jersey towns are receiving notice about a $4.2 million settlement over tickets generated by red light cameras.

A class-action lawsuit was filed, arguing officials failed to conduct an initial traffic study and failed to regularly inspect the devices.

Neither the towns nor American Traffic Solutions admit any wrongdoing. But the red light camera company has agreed to pay the settlement if a judge approves.

The minimum payout is $8.50, or 10 cents on the dollar of the $85 ticket.

The communities involved in the settlement are: Brick, Deptford, East Brunswick, East Windsor, Glassboro, Jersey City, Lawrence, Linden, Gloucester Township, Monroe, Palisades Park, Piscataway, Pohatcong, Rahway, Roselle Park, Union, Wayne and Woodbridge.
