The state Department of Transportation Wednesday afternoon announced that traffic signals at intersetcions with red-light cameras in 21 communities, including Newark, are operating in accordance with state law.
In June, the DOT ordered Newark and 20 other municipalities to suspend issuing violations at camera intersections because questions arose over the timing of the lights. At the time city officials said the city’s signals were in compliance. The city and the other affected communities were ordered to perform an analysis proving their lights were timed according to law.
Newark and the other communities are now permitted to again issue violations, the DOT also stated. A spokesperson at city hall was unable to immediately comment this afternoon.
