      Section: 39:4-8.13: Definitions relative to traffic control signal monitoring systems; recording requirements.

2. As used in this act:

"Recorded image" means a digital image recorded by a traffic control signal monitoring system.

"Summons" means a citation alleging a violation of a traffic control signal.

"Traffic control signal" means a device, whether manually, electrically, mechanically, or otherwise controlled, by which traffic is alternatively directed to stop and to proceed, and which has been approved by the Commissioner of Transportation in accordance with the "Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways."

"Traffic control signal monitoring system" means an integrated system or device utilizing a camera, or a multiple camera system, and vehicle sensors which work in conjunction with a traffic control signal and is capable of producing:

a. high resolution color digital recorded images that show: (1) the traffic control signal while it is displaying a red light; (2) a motor vehicle unlawfully entering and continuing through the intersection while the traffic control signal is displaying a red light; and (3) a portion of the rear of the motor vehicle unlawfully in the intersection sufficient to clearly reveal the vehicle's license plate and the make and model of the vehicle; and

b. a video recording of the violation that shows the violation occurring.

A digital camera may be used as part of a traffic control signal monitoring system provided the violation images are captured by a digital camera, or a multiple camera system, which produces a set of at least two images for each violation. At least one of the digital color images shall contain the following: (1) the scene of the location where the violation occurred; (2) the violating motor vehicle; (3) the license plate numbers, letters, and issuing jurisdiction; (4) the day, month, and year of the violation; (5) the time of the violation in hours, minutes, and seconds; (6) the amount of time that had passed between the time the light turned red and the violation occurred; and (7) the frame sequence code. This information shall be imprinted along the bottom or top edge of the image frame so as not to obstruct the violation image.
