CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Video shows intersection cash from multiple angles as DWI driver runs red light and his vehicle gets launched after striking a median.

One man was injured at Locust Street and Westfield Avenue in Roselle Park, New Jersey. The video is provided by ATS American Traffic Solutions.

ATS reports that 77% of News Jersey residents support red-ligtht safety cameras at busy intersections.

Red-Light Safety Cameras
The system activates when motion is detected just prior to the designated stop bar AFTER the traffic signal has turned red. The stop bar is the point where the intersection technically begins, often designated by a thick white line. When motion is detected, the Red-Light Safety Camera captures two images of an alleged violation, taken in the rear area of the vehicle.

The first image shows the violating vehicle in front of the designated stop bar and the illuminated red light, demonstrating that the vehicle had not entered the intersection before the light changed.

The second image shows the violator in the middle of the intersection with the red light illuminated, providing further evidence of the red-light violation.

A close-up of the violating vehicle’s license plate obtained from one of these two high-resolution images is used to verify the vehicle’s owner as well as additional evidence.

The system also records multiple violation data, including the time, date and durations of the yellow and red lights.

The camera also records a 12-second digital video of the violation that includes six seconds prior to and six seconds after the violating vehicle runs the red light.

For states that require identification of the driver, an image of the front of the vehicle, displaying the driver’s face, is captured as well.
Trained law enforcement officials must review and approve all potential red-light running violations before citations can be issued. These officials closely examine the images, video and violation data to determine whether a violation did in fact occur.

Roselle Park implemented its red-light safety camera program in May 2011.Data shows improvement in dangerous driving. Since the program’s start, red-light running violations have decreased 47% at this intersection. However, as the video shows drivers remain at risk.

An analysis of the Roselle Park program found that ninety-four percent of the vehicles issued a violation have not received a second indicating a high level of compliance with the program and a measurable change in driver behavior.
