 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.
 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 ATS calls Total Events, or all incidents recorded by the cameras, and due to time limitations may have been posted here only for selected months or locations. If there is sufficient public interest, the remaining months will be obtained and posted. The figures in black type are what ATS calls Citations Issued.
 Lane-by-lane monthly data for this month is available in the official reports received 1-11-11 (linked above), which also is the source for the totals given for this month.
 The totals given for this month are from the official reports linked in Docs Set # 2, below.
 The collection rates are from the police department's "Viability Study" linked in Docs Set # 2, below. Page 7 of the Viability Study explains the method by which the collection rates were calculated.
 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.
 Monthly, annual and overall totals are from official reports received 1-24-11.
 Lane-by-lane data for this month was requested on 2-4-13.

The terms will remain in effect through December 31, 2008 at which time the City and ATS will review this agreement and jointly review the individual site performance and determine the monthly unit price. In the event that ATS chooses to decommission four or more units, the previous monthly fee shall be reinstated.
