ATS: Top 5 Findings in New Jersey Department of Transportation 3rd Annual Red-Light Safety Camera Report

TRENTON, N.J., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Red-light safety cameras turned in another year of positive results at intersections in New Jersey, and trends show "driver behavior is being modified," according to the recently issued New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) third annual analysis of the photo enforcement program. According to the report, "Further sustained analysis is needed and the Department recommends that the Traffic Control Signal Monitoring Systems Pilot Program continue."

  1. For the two (2) locations with three (3) years of data, when the Pre-Camera year crash data is compared to Year 3, right-angle crashes are down 86%, rear-end crashes are down 58%, total crashes are down 72%, and estimated crash severity costs have been reduced by $246,200. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 (the first month) of operation with Month 36 (the last month at the end of the three year period), citations are down 83%.

  2. Considering the crash, severity and citation data, both annually and over the three year period it can be concluded that RLR has made a difference and therefore appears to be a viable safety tool at these Group 1 intersections.

  3. For the twenty-two (22) locations that have been active for two (2) full years, when the Pre-Camera year data is compared to Year 2, right-angle crashes are down 60%, rear-end crashes are down 7%, total crashes are down 27%, and estimated crash severity costs have been reduced by $787,200. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 of operation with Month 24, citations are down 61%.

  4. For the twenty-three (23) intersections that have been operating for one (1) full year, when the Pre-Camera year is compared to Year 1, right-angle crashes are down 15%, rear-end crashes are down 3%, total crashes are down 5%, and estimated crash severity costs have decreased by $2,176,100. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 with Month 12, citations are down 31%.

  5. Adding the severity costs for each operational year, right-angle crash costs at all RLR intersections have decreased $1,519,500 and rear-end crash costs have decreased $1,690,000, resulting in a combined net public benefit of $3,209,500 for the program up through December 31, 2012.
