"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 E. 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, D.C. ATS also has regional offices in each of those cities, with ample resources available to assist Woodbridge's program as needed.
