already done so, please read the Grand Terrace section on the Camera Towns page
of Grand Terrace Documents
It may be possible to ignore some of
Grand Terrace's "tickets." If your "ticket" does
not have the Superior Court's name and address on it, it is what I call
a "Fake Ticket" or "Snitch Ticket." For more details, see the
Fake Ticket section on the Your Ticket page.
Total Violations Recorded,
Notices Printed   
This table made by highwayrobbery.net, using official reports obtained under the California Public Records Act.
[ ] 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 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 RedFlex calls Notices Printed, 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).
 Monthly data has been requested but has not yet been received.
 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.
 Includes enforcement of posted "no turn on red" signs.
 The figures in the row at the bottom of the table are totals for the 22 months 9-11-07 to 6-28-09, from a table provided by the City.

"Late Time" Graphs
The City provided bar graphs of Late Times.
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.)
This is a sample.
Bar Graphs, 21 months to June 2009
Bar Graphs, Jan. 2008 & Jan. 2011
Bar graphs are available for other cities, too - see the list in the expanded version of Defect # 9.

Payment Problems - Decision to Terminate (Effective in 2012)
Grand Terrace's illegal cost neutral contract (see Defect # 10 - B) allowed the City to defer paying Redflex.
In the meantime, the City spent the money for other purposes! This problem was discussed at the Aug. 25, 2009 council meeting.
Staff report for council meeting
Aug. 28, 2009 Sun Article: Red-light Cameras are a Financial Headache for Grand Terrace
(If the link to the Sun article stops working, contact me for copy.)
Then, at the Jul. 12, 2011 council meeting, the council voted to notify RedFlex that the City would not renew when the contract expires in Aug. 2012. Staff report. Article.
