City of Victorville Documents
(and Information)


 
Some of Victorville's tickets can possibly be ignored.  If your "ticket" does not have the Superior Court's name and address on it, it is what I call a "Snitch Ticket."  For more details, see the Snitch Ticket section on the Your Ticket page.

In June 2012 CalTrans revoked the encroachment permit they issued to the City.  See Docs Set # 4, below.

Footnotes:

[  ] indicates a footnote.
[1]  Except where noted otherwise, totals are as provided by the City.
[2]  YTD = Year-to-date total.
[3]  Un-used columns are to allow for later expansion of City's system.
[4]  Except where noted otherwise, the figures given in the table are for the single calendar month indicated.  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.  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). Due to time limitations data may have been posted to the table only for selected months or locations.  If there is sufficient public interest, the remaining months or locations will be posted.  Full official data has been received and is available at one of the links given above.
[5]  Monthly data was requested on:
[6]  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.
[8]  Data for this month, and the total for this month, is from a spreadsheet (see link above) created by the sheriff and received by highwayrobbery.net on 4-24-09.
[9]  The total for this month or year (or the projected annual total) was calculated by highwayrobbery.net.
[10] There is no total shown for this month as data was not requested for all cameras active during the month.
[11]  The title bar has been repeated solely for the convenience of the reader - there is no difference between it and the one at the top of the table.
[12]  Data for this month has not been requested.
[13]  In June 2012 a staff report in another city revealed (see bottom of page 2-3) that CalTrans had revoked an encroachment permit issued to the City of Victorville for a camera at D & 7th.  Later, CalTrans withdrew the revocation, and in March 2013 the City restarted the camera.



City of Victorville Docs Set # 2
"Late Time" Graphs

The City provided bar graphs of Late Times, etcetera.  Or, an equivalent table.
These graphs (or tables) track violations recorded, not tickets issued.
Where there is a large number of long Late Time violations in a curb lane, it is believed to indicate heavy ticketing on right turns.
(The curb lane will be the lane with the highest lane number.)

City of Victorville Docs Set # 3
Short Yellows?

This July 2009
article said that some of Victorville's yellows were set too short.  The follow-up article mentioned is not available on the 'net, but it said:
"The Daily Press has found that the majority are exactly at the legal limit, while a couple are a fraction of a second below what they should be.  The light for drivers heading south on Amargosa Road through Bear Valley Road, for example, repeatedly measures 3.5 seconds when it should be 3.6 seconds."
The Daily Press did not reveal how it measured the length of the yellows, or the identity of any other intersection(s) with short yellows.





City of Victorville Docs Set # 4
Six Cameras Removed, Contract Extended

Like the cities of Baldwin Park, Capitola, Citrus Heights, Highland, South San Francisco and Walnut, Victorville failed to hold the formal public hearing required by CVC 21455.6 before it approved the original contract - see the expanded version of Defect # 6.

On March 16, 2010 the city council approved a
contract amendment to remove six low-performing cameras and to extend the term of the contract, making the new expiration occur in 2015.  During the extension the City will continue to pay $6000 per month rent for each of the ten remaining cameras - a total of $1.8 million over the (approx.) 30 additional months of the extension. 
Other cities which have extended their contracts are paying roughly $3000 per month per camera.  For example,
Ventura renewed their 18 cameras at $1800 per month, Santa Clarita renewed their ten cameras at $4000 per month, Garden Grove renewed their 14 cameras at $2900 per month, South Gate renewed their 14 cameras at $2829 per month,  Escondido renewed their 15 cameras at $2833 per month, and Gardena renewed their ten cameras at $3500 per month.

It has been suggested that the City's agreement to pay the above-market rent during the extension was necessary to gain Redflex' agreement to remove the six cameras.  However, Section 6.2 of the original contract allows the City to terminate for convenience and sets out a formula for calculating the exact cost of removal. That formula suggests that the $146,287 payment to Redflex provided for in the amendment is enough to compensate Redflex for the removal, leaving no need to further compensate them by extending the contract, much less paying an above-market rent (an extra $900,000) during the extension.

The contract amendment did not remove the cost neutrality clause.


City
invoices and spreadsheets received here in May 2013 show that the City owes RedFlex $1.3 million.

The listing of contracts and amendments above was up-to-date as of May13, 2013.

2011:  Possible Class Action


The cameras were discussed (staff report) at the Mar. 1, 2011 Victorville City Council meeting, and private-sector attorney Brandon Wood agreed to work with the City to attempt to find a way for the City to end its contract with Redflex. 
  By April 27, the city attorney had made multiple attempts to contact Wood, to no avail.
On Dec. 14, 2011 there was an
article indicating a possible class action suit by attorney Robert Conaway.
