the disposition of the tickets.

[ ] indicates a footnote.
 Totals are as provided by the City.
 YTD = Year-to-date total.
 Un-used columns are to allow for later expansion of City's system.
 Any figures in red type (or, if you are looking at this table in black and white, the upper figure when there are two or more figures in a cell) are what RedFlex calls Total Violations, or all incidents recorded by the cameras, and due to time limitations may have been posted only for selected months or locations. If there is sufficient public interest, the remaining months will be posted. The figures in black type are what RedFlex calls Notices Printed, and represent the sum of genuine citations issued (those filed with the court) plus any Nominations mailed (not filed with the court, a.k.a. Snitch Tickets). Figures in blue type (or, if you are looking at this table in black and white, in italic type) are total Cites Issued (filed with the court), per RedFlex's monthly invoices to the City.
 Data was received on 9-7-12. Intersection-by-intersection data will be posted to this table as time permits. The official documents are available at the link above.
 The camera enforcement is believed to be on traffic on the first-named street, but the direction of enforcement (north, south, east, west, thru, left, right) is not yet available.

Lynwood signed a
with RedFlex on Dec. 18, 2003, just before the effective
date of CVC 21455.5(g) (as of 2013, 21455.5(h)).
The contract provided:
The new contract also says: "Definitions. 'Warning Period' means a period after the Installation Date of the first intersection approach..." (Emphasis added.) See Defect # 6.
The new contract set
the monthly fee per existing camera at $5000.
On the council
agenda for Oct. 1, 2013 there was a staff request for
the council to "provide direction" about the possible
extension of the contract.
On the council
agenda for Mar. 18, 2014 there was a report recommending
a five-year extension of the camera program.
During the meeting, the sheriff told the council that
77% of all tickets have been going to visitors - and a
councilmember proposed that the fine be reduced for City
residents. The council voted to "table" the
matter, with the likelihood that it will come back to
the meeting of April 1.

cities pay, go to FAQ # 17.
