This table made by highwayrobbery.net, using official monthly tabulations of citations actually issued. The official tabulations for 2008 are available in Set # 4, below.
[ ] indicates a footnote.
 Monthly and 2003, 2008 totals are as provided by the City. 2004 YTD totals are by highwayrobbery.net . 2008 affidavit total is by highwayrobbery.net.
 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 Nestor calls Violations Recorded, 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 posted. The figures in black type are what Nestor calls Citations Issued, and may 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).
Any figures in blue type (and in parentheses) are what Nestor calls Affidavits Approved, which is believed to represent the number of real tickets and any Nominations (Snitch Tickets) where the initial recipient provided the identity of another driver.
 2003 totals cover Mar. 7 through Dec. 31. Month-by-month figures for 2003 will be posted if there is sufficient public interest..
 2004 totals cover through Oct. 31.
 2008 affidavit total is by highwayrobbery.net.

In Nov. 2008 a Fullerton defendant got an appellate court decision saying that the City's cost-neutral contract violated Section 21455.5(g) (as of 2013, 21455.5(h)) and that the trial court erred in admitting evidence from the camera.
Here is an Orange County Register Feb. 2, 2009 article about it.
Fullerton Docs Set # 4
Reports: Late Times, Maintenance
Fullerton sent me an Excel spreadsheet file including a number of reports for 2008: Maintenance records, separate breakdowns of tickets by Late Time and time of day, and Performance Reports giving the number of tickets issued at each intersection each month. The Performance Reports provided the 2008 data shown in the large table above (Set # 1).
It should be possible to obtain these same reports from other Nestor cities.
