City of Millbrae Documents
(and Information)


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

If you have a ticket from Millbrae be sure to contact me, and also read Defect # 8 (on the Home page) and the "San Mateo County Information," which is Docs Set # 5 on the San Mateo Documents page.

If you have a  ticket from 101 at Millbrae Avenue or El Camino at Millbrae Avenue, see Big Spike in Ticketing and Set # 3,  both below.

East Bay Voters:

Do you live in the South end of Alameda County or the North end of Santa Clara County - State Sen. Ellen Corbett's former District?

In 2014 Sen. Corbett "termed out," and has been replaced by this person

Wieckowski, author anti-motorist bill AB 666
 
Wieckowski, Author of the anti-motorist bills SB-1 and AB 666

who will be running for re-election in 2018 and 2022.

Please don't vote for him.

Send him back home to his bankruptcy law practice.

As of 2017 he is in the State Legislature in Sacramento and was co-author of SB-1 (raises gas tax and car registration fees starting Nov. 2017).  In 2013 he was the author of AB-666 which - had it passed - would have increased the number of red light camera tickets.  Before reaching the Legislature he was a member of the Fremont City Council, and during his time on the council he approved two extensions of Fremont's contract with RedFlex:  He was the maker of the 2005 motion to extend the contract to 2010, and in 2010 he made the motion to extend the contract to June 2017.

This table made by highwayrobbery.net, using official documents obtained under the California Public Records Act.
[  ] indicates a footnote.
[1]  Totals are as provided by the City, except for Jul. 2009 to Mar. 2010, which are hand totals by highwayrobbery.net, and those marked [2].
[2]  These annual totals and annual projections are by highwayrobbery.net.  The 2016 projection is based upon June - Oct.
[3]  Un-used columns are to allow for later expansion of City's system.
[4]  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 posted.  The figu
res in black type are what ATS 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).
[5]  Data has been requested but has not yet been received.
[6]  The lanes are numbered from the center of the street (most often a left turn lane), out to the curb (most often a right turn lane). 
[7]  Includes enforcement of posted "no turn on red" signs.
[8]  The figures in this row are totals for the 30 months 10-1-06 to 3-31-09, from a table provided by the City.
[9]  The report for this month was generated less than ten days after the end of the month which left a number of Violation Events not yet fully processed ("still in workflow").  Thus it is likely that more citations will be issued, with the maximum being 23 additional citations.
[10]  The report for this month was generated a few days before the end of the month.  Further, there is a (approx.) five day lag in the approval of citations.  As a result, the Citations Issued figures have not been posted to the table above.
[11]  See Big Spike in Ticketing, below.
[12]  This camera operates under an Encroachment Permit issued by the State.  See Set # 3, below.
[13]  In June 2011 a right turn arrow was installed at Nbd Rollins at Millbrae.
[14]  The camera-by-camera figures posted above for 2010 and before are the totals for all lanes enforced by the camera.  If there is sufficient public interest, the lane-by-lane figures will be requested and posted.
[15]  In Nov. 2015 CalTrans added 0.4 sec. to the length of the yellows for the photo-enforced movements at these intersections.  See Set # 8, below.
[16]  Until 2016 Millbrae did not provide the annual report required by CVC 21455.5(i), so highwayrobbery.net estimated the number of straight thru, right, and left turn tickets.  The movements designated in this row are a generalization used to make that estimate.

The table above was made by highwayrobbery.net, using the following official monthly reports provided by the City:

Ticket Counts:  Current Highlights -
May 2014, June 2015, March 2016, Summer 2016:  BIG Spikes in Ticketing

The doubling in May 2014 and the jump in June 2015 were subjects of Vic Lee reports on KGO-TV on Aug. 5, 2014 and July 28, 2015, and a Stanley Roberts report on KRON-TV, on July 30, 2015
The San Mateo Daily Journal published:

Millbrae Press Release:  The Beatings Will Continue

After Vic Lee's first story highwayrobbery.net received a
press release the City issued around Aug. 18, 2014.  In that press release the City said:

"While the number of citations issued were reduced in July [2014] as we completed our due diligence into the increase, it is anticipated that these numbers will return to the levels of May and June 2014."

March 2016 was the highest ever, by far - until July 2016.


Why are the Spikes Happening?


"Lee attributed the jump in tickets to increased economic activity in Millbrae, as officials have dedicated effort in recent months to improving the city’s downtown."
Millbrae Councilmember Wayne Lee, in 11-21-16 Daily Journal article.

The City's efforts in the downtown are to be lauded, but the sudden doubling of flashes (the red numbers in the table above) seen beginning in June 2016 at the 101 offramp can only be explained by humans tinkering with the cameras.


What to Do? 
 
If you have a Millbrae ticket, please contact me.  And - since this camera operates under a State of California Encroachment Permit - be sure to contact your state legislators in Sacramento (see Set # 3, below).

If you wish to contact the city council - or other Bay Area authorities such as the BART board or the SFO Commission, see the contact info near the top of this page.


81% of Tickets were for Right Turns

Per the City's annual report for 2016, 81% of the City's tickets were for right turns.




City of Millbrae Docs Set # 2
2015:  City's Revenue is Three Times the Expense

“We don’t make money off of the traffic cameras,” he said. “We just make enough money to pay back the contractors.”
Claimed by Millbrae Councilmember Wayne Lee, in 11-21-16 Daily Journal article.

The City provided this report of ticket revenue it received from the court.  The figures are "gross," before any City payments to the camera company.

To see the Court's official tables of how much fine money the Court has
sent to the City, go to Docs Set # 5 on the San Mateo Docs page.


As of late 2015 Millbrae was paying ATS $26,975 per month for the cameras, and the City was paying the City of San Mateo's police department, which operates the program on behalf of Millbrae, a fee of $5225 per month, for a total of $32,200 per month. 

In late 2016 Millbrae agreed to increase the fee paid to San Mateo to $18,550 per month.  That increase is offset, partially, by the scheduled decrease, to $20,975, of the rent paid to ATS.  The new total is $39,525.  (See Set # 4, below, for links to the contracts between Millbrae, ATS and the SMPD.) 

The fees paid to ATS and the SMPD cover all of the routine work associated with the camera program, although Millbrae remains responsible
for responding to public records requests and for providing legal representation when tickets are challenged in court.

"Don't Be Evil"
Part of the corporate motto of a large corporation headquartered near Millbrae.





Millbrae Docs Set # 3
Encroachment Permits - The City's Achilles' Heel?

  The Millbrae Avenue/101 camera and the El Camino/Millbrae Avenue camera are located on CalTrans right-of-way, so are operated under two Encroachment Permits the City obtained from CalTrans.  (No Encroachment Permit was required for the cameras at Millbrae Ave./Rollins as neither of those streets is a State highway.)

In June 2015 highwayrobbery.net sent CalTrans a letter suggesting that the accident records did not justify the issuance of the Permits. 
Attachments to the letter:
City's Justification for El Camino/Millbrae Avenue Camera
City's Justification for 101 Freeway/Millbrae Avenue Camera


In Sept. 2015 CalTrans told Millbrae that the City would need to apply to renew the Permits, by Jan. 1, 2016.  Later, CalTrans extended the deadline to apply, to May 1 and on May 4 the City submitted an:  

Encroachment Permit Application, with Traffic Study (and CalTrans Response) (35 MB file)

On July 7, 2016 CalTrans asked the City to provide more information, and set a 45-day deadline. 
(That letter is part of the large file, above.)

On Sept. 9, 2016 CalTrans again extended the deadline, to Oct. 9, and on Oct. 5 the City submitted a:

Revised Traffic Study

The revised study included this colorful graph.

Millbrae red light cameras - Fig 2 from DKS
                  study
From the DKS study - link above - commissioned by the City

In the text following the above graph, the Licensed Professional Engineer who wrote the study suggested that the cameras were responsible for the drop in crashes: 
"The overall number of crashes per year are generally lower with the ARLE  program in operation...."
The engineer made that claim even though crashes were down for 2+ years before Fall 2006 when the first of the cameras were installed.  Also, he did not
address why, after the late 2009 installation
of the prolific cameras at El Camino/Millbrae and 101/Millbrae, crashes rose instead of declining.

Highwayrobbery.net's Oct. 30, 2016 comment letter to CalTrans

If you feel that your Millbrae ticket was unfair, or a trap, or that the rate of accidents wasn't and/or isn't high enough to justify the heavy enforcement, please consider asking your representatives in Sacramento (assemblymember and state senator) to ask CalTrans to refuse to grant the annual renewal of Millbrae's Encroachment Permits.

Some other cities operate cameras under Encroachment Permits.  For more information about those cities and about CalTrans' criteria for the issuance of an Encroachment Permit, see the CalTrans section on the Links page.




Millbrae Docs Set # 4
The Contract - Paying Way Too Much and No Escape

2006 Staff Reports
2006 Contract
2009/2010 Amendment

On March 14, 2006 the city council approved the implementation of a red light camera system, and also the police department's selection of American Traffic Solutions ("ATS") to be the supplier of the system.  The staff report did not reveal why there was no competitive bidding.

On June 13, 2006 the city council held the public hearing required by CVC 21455.6.  A contract was approved by unanimous vote, as Mayor Gottschalk had predicted in his June 8 State of the City address:  

"On June 13, the City Council again will approve a proposal to install red light traffic cameras at Rollins Road and Millbrae Avenue, which could generate additional revenue for the City (but more importantly improve traffic safety)."


Millbrae's system began issuing tickets on Oct. 18, 2006.
  
Until a 2009/2010 amendment
, Millbrae's contract included an illegal "cost neutrality" clause, whereby the city did not have to pay ATS the full rent if the City's fine revenues were insufficient to cover the rent.  See Subsection B. of Defect # 10.  (The effective date of the amendment is believed to be Feb. 4, 2010, but it could be as early as Dec. 31, 2009 or as late as Feb. 18, 2010.  See the amendment.)

The 2006 contract, with an initial term of five years, includes two two-year extensions which were to occur automatically unless the City provided ATS with 120 days prior notice that it wished not to extend.
(Contract extensions should never be automatic!)

The City took no action before the Oct. 2011 end of the five year contract term, thus allowed the contract to automatically extend to Oct. 2013.  In an after-the-fact June 2012 letter to ATS the City confirmed the extension and asked ATS to remove camera M105.

Invoices and check stubs received from the City in June 2013 revealed that Millbrae continued to pay $5395 per camera per month, way too much for equipment averaging five years old.

In Feb. and June 2013 highwayrobbery.net wrote to the city council, suggesting that they negotiate for a better price.

In Oct. 2013 the City again allowed the contract to automatically extend for another two years, to Oct. 2015, without obtaining a better price; invoices received in Feb. 2014 (and again in Feb. 2015) showed that after the second extension, Millbrae continued to pay $5395 for equipment having an average age of seven years (as of Oct. 2014, the midway point of the extension). 

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


From Exh. D of the Elk Grove Contract

  Millbrae will pay 112% too much (more than double the Elk Grove price schedule) over the two years of the 2013-2015 extension, $342,696 extra.  To cover that extra rent, the City will need to issue an extra 3427 tickets (assuming that the City receives an average of $100 for each ticket issued).
 
And there was no way out.
Millbrae's 2013-2015 contract did not include an escape clause (Termination for Convenience) - something commonly found in other cities' contracts - so the City was locked in until Oct. 2015 and could not cancel or get a better price.

Go to FAQ # 17 for more information about other cities' contracts, and to see how much they pay.

  Millbrae does not process its red light camera tickets.  Nor does the sheriff.  The City has a contract under which it pays the City of San Mateo and its police department a flat fee to process the tickets, appear in court, and run all other aspects of the program.  In a late 2016 amendment to the contract, Millbrae agreed to increase the fee it pays to San Mateo to $18,550, more than triple the previous $5225.
 

  New Contract in November 2015, Expiring Nov. 2018 or Nov. 2020

At their Nov. 24, 2015 (right before Thanksgiving) meeting the city council received a two page
staff report recommending the continuation of the program, asked questions of staff, heard comments from two members of the public and then voted 5 - 0 to accept a contract for three years plus an automatic extension of two more years.  The new contract says: 

"This agreement shall commence upon the effective date [Dec. 9, 2015] and shall continue for a term of three years.  This Agreement will automatically extend for a consecutive two year term.  However, Customer or ATS may terminate this Agreement at the expiration of any term by providing written notice of its intent not to extend the Agreement one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term."
 
Opinion:  Extensions should never be automatic - this is not a cable TV contract!  Extensions should occur only after a thorough review by the City Council.

Under the new contract Millbrae will pay
$5395 for each camera each month during the first twelve months of the three years, and then $4195 during the second and third years, for a total payout of $827,100.  But at Elk Grove prices (see Elk Grove table, above) Millbrae would pay only $376,704 over the three years, less than half of what it has agreed to pay. 
To make that extra
$450,396, the City will need to issue 4504 extra tickets over the three years (assuming that the City's share from each paid ticket is $150, and that 2/3 of the tickets issued are paid).

The City is stuck with those prices - the new contract has been signed by all parties, and it still does not contain an escape clause.  As a result, the city council cannot shut the cameras off without breaching the contract.  Fortunately for the motoring public, CalTrans has the power to shut down two of the cameras, M106 and M107, by refusing to renew the encroachment permits for those cameras.  
CalTrans could make a decision about the renewal as soon as the middle of December 2016, so NOW is the time to act.   See Set # 3, above.

Guidelines

In July 2014 I asked the City for the guidelines required by CVC 21455.5(c)(1) and the annual report required by CVC 21455.5(i).  They provided only the
guidelines, which were only one page.

In Feb. 2015 the City provided
guidelines and business rules.
