Drivers who received red light camera tickets in Woodbridge and other municipalities who subscribe to the program won a class action lawsuit against American Traffic Solutions (ATS) Friday.
The settlement announced Friday was for $4.2 million according to a report on nj.com and affects motorists who received red light camera tickets at those lights where the timing of the yellow lights weren't properly certified by the state back in June.
The problem affected 21 of 26 municipalities enrolled in the program, including Woodbridge, but only one red light camera of the four in the township was at issue. That's the one at the intersection of Route 1 and Avenel Street in the Avenel section of Woodbridge.
It also only affects drivers who received tickets at red light camera intersections operated by American Traffic Solutions.
Motorists who got red light camera tickets will receive a postcard in the mail telling them how to apply for their refund. The average refund on tickets ranging from $85 to $140 will be about $6, according to a nj.com report.
The municipalities affected by the settlement include Woodbridge, Rahway, Linden, East Brunswick, East Windsor, Piscataway, and Brick, among others.
