ATS chosen for further New Jersey traffic enforcement systems

American Traffic Solutions : 07 April, 2009  (Application Story)
Woodbridge in New Jersey is tackling the problem of accidents at traffic light controlled junctions with the help of red-light enforcement cameras from American Traffic Solutions
American Traffic Solutions (ATS) has become the red-light camera program vendor for Woodbridge Township, New Jersey following its approval by the New Jersey Department of Transportation to participate in the state's five-year red-light running automated enforcement pilot program. The Township's application to the state for approval cited that it had selected ATS pending permission to move forward with its program.

"The Section of Route 1 that runs through Woodbridge Township is one of the most heavily traveled corridors in all of New Jersey," said Woodbridge Township Mayor John McCormac. "Red-light cameras are proven to increase safety, reduce crashes and improve the flow of traffic moving through heavily congested corridors like Route 1."

ATS serves more than 150 communities across the country with photo-enforcement programs including in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. ATS also has regional offices in each of those cities, with ample resources available to assist Woodbridge's program as needed.

New York City's red-light camera program has seen a 73 percent reduction in violations between 1994 and 2005. According to a 2007 study completed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, researchers tallied signal violations at intersections in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before and after red-light camera enforcement had been in effect for about one year and found the cameras reduced violations by 96 percent.

Just a 40-minute trip from New York City, Woodbridge has been a meeting place for people since 1664. It is the oldest incorporated community in New Jersey, and the fifth largest municipality in the state with a population of more than 106,000. The Township consists of 10 communities -- Avenel, Colonia, Fords, Hopelawn, Iselin, Keasbey, Menlo Park Terrace, Port Reading, Sewaren, and Woodbridge proper.
