Those cameras to catch drivers that run red lights in Brick are history.

They went dark yesterday and according to

State Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon (R-Monmouth), a vocal critic of the cameras, couldn't let the occasion pass without a commemoration. So he stood under a camera during its last day Monday and displayed a banner that read "Good Riddance!"

Brick Mayor John Ducey pulled the plug on red-light cameras at all three Brick intersections that had them because he said he didn't believe they were contributing to safety.

Visitors who got violation notices also said they wouldn't return as long as the cameras were still there.

"I want to welcome the out-of-town drivers back to shop and eat in our local businesses again," the mayor said.
