New Jersey drivers may see traffic violations from speed cameras

Ticket cameras are a hotly debated tool to manage speeding in states across the U.S. Many states have rolled out these programs and then ended the use of speed cameras later. Some see the use of the tool as a way to modify driver behavior and keep others safe. Others see the cameras as a money grab by police agencies. New Jersey drivers may see traffic violations from the speed cameras again if a bill allowing their use passes in the state. 

This year, 13 states are looking at modifications to the rules surrounding ticket cameras. According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, more than 500 places around the country implement the use of red light and/or speed cameras to catch drivers who disobey traffic rules and who otherwise would not be caught. Supporters hope to change dangerous behaviors and protect the lives of highway workers, drivers and pedestrians. 

In New Jersey, a proposed bill, A3082, is currently being reviewed in committee. If the bill passes as currently written, speed enforcement cameras would be allowed in highway work zones. A driver found in violation of the speed limit by 11mph or more would have a ticket sent to the home of the registered owner of the vehicle. The fine would be $100, and there would be no points associated with the ticket. 

Traffic violations can start to add up fines and penalties for drivers in New Jersey. Although the use of cameras in the state is not new, if the law passes, more drivers could find themselves facing the consequences of the camera. No technology is perfect, and drivers could find themselves wanting to defend against charges of speeding. In those types of cases, an knowledgeable defense attorney could prove useful to the person facing the charges.
