POHATCONG TWP., Pa. -

About 17,000 tickets to motorists charged with running red lights in New Jersey have been voided all because of a computer glitch.

This affects one township in Warren County.

The state sent a letter to Pohatcong Township and 16 other towns that have contracts with American Traffic Solutions notifying them of the problem.

A state judiciary spokeswoman says the computer problems between May 28 and June 30 resulted in motorists not receiving notices of violations.

New Jersey law requires that if a ticket hasn't been served within 90 days, it must be dismissed.
