1. Warning- New Jersey Photo Red-Light Ticket invadesCentral NJ.
Traffic control signal monitoring systems (also known as the "RLR System") is an integrated system used to record evidence authorities need to prosecute red-light runners and other traffic violators. The system is made up of a single camera, or a multiple camera system, which trigger vehicle sensors when a violation occurs to capture the traffic violation in live time.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) announced the designation of ten new municipalities for the Red-Light Running Automated Enforcement pilot program. Hoboken, Morris Township, South Brunswick, Woodbridge, Gloucester Township, Cherry Hill, Stratford, Deptford, Monroe and Glassboro were designated for participation.
The Assembly Bill 4314 established a five-year pilot program to determine the effectiveness of the installation and utilization of traffic control signal monitoring systems. Similar programs have been implemented in twenty-four states other then New Jersey. The NJDOT designated Brick Township, Newark, East Brunswick, Piscataway, Roselle Park, Stafford, Edison, Jersey City, Lawrence, Linden, New Brunswick and Wayne for participation in the first-year pilot program.Although violators are not given points for infractions caught by red-light cameras, it is considered a moving violation.Therefore, if you are on DMV of MVC probation your driver license will be suspended if you are issued a moving violation via a red-light camera.
While some towns claim these are "safety" tickets, they really are revenue enhancers.One company even brags how law enforcementorganizations can helpmunicipalities facing a budget crisis.So, be careful running those yellow lights on Rt 27 and Plainfield in Edison, and Rt 18 and Tices Ln in East Brunswick.
2. Police do not need arrest warrant if they observe offense. State v Brown _____ NJ _____ (2011)A-67-09/A-17-10
At the time Brown fled through a window onto a roof next door, the police had engaged in no misconduct; thus, there was no seizure of any sort in the apartment. When the police arrested Brown after he came down from the roof, they did not need an arrest warrant because they had probable cause to arrest him in a public place (1) for armed robbery committed outside their presence and (2) for resisting arrest, which they observed.
