This table made by highwayrobbery.net, using official monthly tabulations of citations actually issued.
Official reports, Jan. 2007 - Apr. 2010
Official reports, 2010 - 2011
Official reports, 2011 - 2012
Official reports, 2011 - 2013
[ ] 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.
 Data for months other than January and July is available from the city, but has not been requested.
 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 ACS (the city's camera supplier before 2007) calls Citations Issued and
RedFlex (the supplier after 2007) 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).
 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..
 One of these camera codes (Cam #) will appear in the data bar above the
photos on your ticket.
 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.
 The Dec. 2011 report generated in Jan. 2012 differs from the Dec. 2011 report generated in Dec. 2012. highwayrobbery.net inquired as to why but could not get an answer.

"Late Time" Graphs
The City provided bar graphs of Late Times, etcetera, for all eight of its 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.)
The picture above is an example from another city.
highwayrobbery.net requested bar graphs for each intersection for
the months of Jul07, Jan09, Jul09, Apr10 and Oct11.
The following are those received.
BEGA 2009 - 2010
GAVC 2007 - 2010
MOBE 2009 - 2010
MOPA-01 2009 - 2010
MOPA-03 2009 - 2010
MOWH 2009 - 2010
VCGA 2009 - 2010
WAGR 2007 - 2010
Oct. 2012 - All Cameras
Bar graphs are available for more than fifty other cities - see the list in the expanded version of Defect # 9.
