Smile! While You Wait at a Red Light, You're on Candid Camera

In January 2008, Governor Corzine signed a law which allows cities across the state to install cameras at intersections for the purpose of catching folks who run red lights. Here’s how it works: you run red light, and the camera would take a color photo of you mid violation. Then you’d get a ticket in the mail. The bill has its share of supporters and detractors. Some say that the cameras are a good thing because they save lives by preventing accidents and the presence of the cameras reduce the number of red light violations. Others contend that the cameras deny alleged violators the right to confront an accuser in court, that they could possibly lead to innocent drivers being charged and overall their presence will do nothing to deter unsafe motorists.
