City of Garden Grove Documents
(and Information)

Garden Grove, pop. 171,000, is 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles.


Some of Garden Grove's tickets can 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 Fake Ticket section on the Your Ticket page.



In 2018, Vote No on Sheila Kuehl

Do you live in LA County?  Was Zev Yaroslavsky your County Supervisor?  (He represented the Third District, which includes the central and western San Fernando Valley, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Beverly Hills, the City of West Hollywood, and part of Hollywood.)

Zev "termed out," and in the Nov. 2014 election Sheila Kuehl won the race to succeed him, by a narrow margin.
 
Sheila Kuehl authored 3 speed
                camera bills
Sheila "Kuehl Cams" Kuehl, in 2007

During her career in the California Legislature, Kuehl made three attempts to pass bills to allow the use of automated speed enforcement (photo radar) in California.

As an LA County Supervisor, she has a seat on the MTA/Metro board and she will be a vote to continue and expand Metro's huge (101 cameras, so far) red light camera system.
In 2016 she voted to put an additional LA County-wide sales tax, to go to Metro, on the Nov. 2016 ballot.  (See
Measure M on the Action/Legis page, for more about that tax.)

Kuehl will be up for re-election in Nov. 2018 and Nov. 2022.



Vote No on Donald Wagner

Do you live in Orange County, in or near Anaheim, Corona del Mar, Costa Mesa, El Toro, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, or Villa Park?  Was Donald Wagner your State assemblymember?
In 2014 Wagner was the sponsor of Assembly Bill 2487 which would have taken away your right to a Trial de Novo.
In early 2015, while he still was in the Assembly, Wagner ran to jump over to the State Senate, but lost to John Moorlach.  Early the next year he started another Senate run against fellow Republican Moorlach, but backed down after encountering heavy criticism from their Party followed by the Party's endorsement of his opponent.  Later in 2016, when he was just months away from being termed-out of the Assembly, he ran for mayor of the City of Irvine, and won.

Cal. Asm. Donald Wagner,
                sponsor of AB 2487
Former Asm. Donald Wagner

It's predictable that Wagner will run for higher office again.
Please don't reward him with your vote.



Be sure to read the "Countywide Information" for OC, which is Docs Set # 6 on the Santa Ana Documents page.

[3]  Un-used columns are to allow for later expansion of City's system.
[4]  Jan. 2004 counts are incomplete.
[5]  Enforcement on right and left turns has been indicated, when known.  However, the absence of a "Rt" or "Left" indication does not necessarily mean that there is no enforcement on turns at that intersection.
[6]  The compass direction of enforcement, and/or the movement ("thru," "right," "left") noted here may be incorrect.
[7]  Except where noted otherwise, the figures given in the table are for the single calendar month indicated. 
Figures in red type and not enclosed in parentheses (or, if you are looking at this table in black and white, the upper figure when there are two or more rows of figures in a cell) are what RedFlex calls Total Processed Incidents or Total Violations, and represent Total Detections (all incidents flashed by the camera) minus Nonprosecutable incidents.
Any figures in (red) type enclosed in parentheses are Total Detections. and come from the official report entitled RTS Management Report (example) which, beginning in 2013, highwayrobbery.net will be requesting from all cities. 
   The figures in black type are what the city 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, complete figures have been posted only for selected months or cameras.  If there is sufficient public interest, the remaining months or cameras will be posted.

[9]  All data has been received (see link to 2008 - 2009 official tabulations, above) but only a portion has been posted, due to time limitations.
[10]  Data for this month was requested on: 
[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 was printed out less than ten days after the end of the month, which would cause the Approved Violations/Notices Printed count to be low.  The figure published above was adjusted by the following calculation:  331 + (34x331/471).
[13]  The BRWE cameras were not listed in the official reports for these months but still may have been in operation.

Garden Grove Docs Set # 3
Non-Compliant Signs Replaced


Until late Summer 2006, the warning signs at some Garden Grove intersections were much smaller than the required warning signs (see Defect # 4), didn't carry the required symbol or language, or were placed on the far side of the intersection instead of in advance.
Now the City has replaced them with the proper signs. 




Garden Grove Docs Set # 4
Contract & Installation Dates


 
New contract signed in 2007

In Feb. 2012 the City agreed to a six-month
extension, to Aug. 2012.

In July 2012 the City approved
(staff report and minutes) a three-year extension plus two automatic one-year extensions (unless, 60 days in advance of the expiration dates the City notifies RedFlex of its intent not to extend).

Contract extensions should never be automatic - this is not a contract for cable TV!

In 2015 the the deadline to stop the first of the two automatic extensions was looming, so on June 9 the city council discussed (staff report) the continuation of the camera program.  The city manager described the purpose of the discussion as follows.

"The Mayor has expressed an interest in taking an in-depth look at the effectiveness of the red light camera program including but not limited to cost, accident reduction, community impact, liability considerations, etc. The intent behind the request is to schedule this for a future City Council meeting or Study Session so that all of the information related to this program can be made available to the City Council and the public. Consequently, we will not be generating reports for Tuesday's meeting but discussing the topic generally with the intent of setting a date & time specific in the future..."

On June 23 a Voice of OC article (archived copy) headlined "Garden Grove Might Nix Red Light Cameras" said that the council's action had been to request a review of the program - at a later date.  They did not vote to send a 60-day notice to RedFlex, so missed the deadline to stop the first of the two one-year extensions from occurring, and lost the opportunity to bargain for a better price.  The City would have to continue to pay $2279 per camera per month - way too much (see invoices) - until June 2016. 

Example of lower prices:  In March 2014 the City of Elk Grove, California approved a new contract which specified the following schedule of rents for their five RedFlex cameras. 


From Exh. D of the Elk Grove Contract

The review occurred at the Aug. 25 council meeting.  Staff Report  By then, all of Garden Grove's cameras were ten years old or more ( installation dates ).  At the meeting the council agreed - the deadline to object had passed - to extend the program for a year and to continue to pay $2279 per month per camera (52% too much, compared to the Elk Grove price schedule), an extra $130,872 extra during the year. 
To cover that extra rent, Garden Grove will need to issue an extra 1309 tickets during the year (assuming that the City receives an average of $100 for each ticket issued).


The council expressed concern about questions raised in two letters from the public (
SaferStreetsLA Report  highwayrobbery.net email), so ordered staff to do a further study of accident rates.

Aug. 2015 Register Editorial (archived copy)

The next review occurred at the Oct. 27 council meeting.  (
Staff Report (15MB)  SaferStreetsLA Report  highwayrobbery.net email)
The accident study was approved by a 3 - 2 vote.
 
(Minutes)

Oct. 30, 2015 Editorial  (archived copy)
Nov. 5, 2015 Article  (archived copy)

It appears that in June 2016 the second (and last) one-year extension occurred automatically, allowing the program to continue until Aug. 2017.


This list of contracts and amendments was up-to-date as of Nov. 22, 2016.

"Late Time" Graphs

The City provided
bar graphs
of Late Times, etcetera, for all fourteen cameras.
These graphs 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.)
