Ducey, O’Scanlon Schedule “Major” Red-Light Camera Announcement in Brick

The inflammatory-bordering-on-toxic red-light camera pilot project that’s now the subject of a lawsuit is the focus of a joint press conference tomorrow in Brick Township.

Newly-elected Democratic Mayor John Ducey brings Monmouth Republican Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R-13) to the Municipal Building on Chambers Bridge Road at 3 PM.

Little information on the agenda is apparent, but the notification significantly describes New Jersey’s camera program as “failed.” Brick Township operates several devices.

O’Scanlon has been on the warpath against the project practically since its inception, claiming that the public-safety rationale is a cover for a financial windfall by communities in the program, which is near the end of its trial period.

Among other perceived flaws, the Republican was able to demonstrate timing deficiencies in amber signals that forced an inflated number of drivers to be found entering, or not clear of, intersections on red – driving up violation totals, piling up fines and filling drivers’ education classes with people trying desperately not to exceed license point totals that would suspend their driving privileges.

O’Scanlon’s findings contributed to two separate suspensions of the project.

Yesterday, a former sales rep for Redflex accused the company of greasing palms in New Jersey and other states to start the programs in the first place.

The company has denied the allegations and added that the ex-employee was fired for policy violations.
