I heard somewhere that in order for a red light camera ticket to be valid in New Jersey, there needs to be a sign saying "red light photo enforced," or something along those lines? Is that true, and if so, where can I find the law or regulation saying that? Thanks.
I haven't heard of the notice requirement. However the police do need to review all recorded violations prior to issuing the summons for such offense.
.NJS 39:4-8.14 &15 establish the program. 14(d) requires a sign notifying drivers that the signal is observed by camera. But 15 (d) says the lack of such a signal is not a defense. Go figure
I believe here needs to be signage but the lack of it won't get you off the summons.
In my experience, you would receive a summons in the mail and can then request to see the video of the red light violation. I am not aware of a specific regulation on the issue of a sign being posted for red light camera tickets but there is usually some type of sign that appears in most municipalities where these tickets are being issued.
