NJ Governor Promises Curbs on Red-Light Cameras

The little revenue machines are pissing people off


The days may be numbered for red light camera programs in New Jersey. Governor Chris Christie (R) announced his support for legislation that would curb the program while taking questions from callers on New Jersey 101.5 radio's "Ask the Governor" show on Thursday.

"The fact is, we need to make some changes to the program, and those changes can only be made legislatively," Christie said. "I can't by executive fiat do anything other than suspend the program—which I did once—to verify that it was in compliance with current law, which it was… Believe me, this wasn't my idea in the first place, so I got no stake in this thing."
