Says a new state report "confirms" that red-light cameras "lead to more accidents, more injuries and greater cost."
"There is little if any evidence that the use of red light cameras in New Jersey has reduced the number or severity of accidents at the intersections where they are used."
Says State Comptroller Matthew Boxer "pointed out that many towns are artificially lowering the real estate values that they report to Trenton" in order to "get hundreds of millions of dollars of additional school aid. This is the kind of fraud that needs to be addressed immediately."

"The top 1 percent of income earners pay 40 percent of all state income taxes, and those at the bottom pay little or nothing."
