Redding Documents

Some of Redding's tickets can possibly 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 Snitch Ticket section on the Your Ticket page.

[  ] indicates a footnote.
[1]  Totals are as provided by the City.
[2]  These annual totals, or annual projections, are by highwayrobbery.net.  The 2016 projections are based upon Jan. and Mar. thru June.
[3]  Un-used columns are to allow for later expansion of City's system.
[4]  Except where noted otherwise, the figures given in the table are for the single calendar month indicated.  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.  The figures in black type are what RedFlex 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 data may have been posted to the table only for selected months or locations.  If there is sufficient public interest, the remaining months or locations will be posted.  Full official data has been received and is available at one of the links given above.
[5]  Monthly data has been requested.
[6]  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.
[7]  Includes enforcement of posted "no turn on red" signs.
[8]  Official data has been received, is available at the last link above, but due to time constraints has not yet been fully posted to the table above.
[9]  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.
[10]  The report for this month was generated before the end of the month, so does not reflect the full number of tickets issued.
[11]  See Set # 3, below, for the financial impact of the heavy ticketing at Cypress/Hilltop.



Redding Docs Set # 2
"Late Time" Graphs

The City provided bar graphs of Late Times, etcetera, for all 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 Contract - Bonanza for RedFlex in 2015

2007 Contract
2009 Amendment

The 2007 contract (approved 4 - 1 by Dickerson, Murray, Stegall and Bosetti, with Jones voting "no") includes an illegal "cost neutrality" clause, whereby the city does not have to pay RedFlex the full rent if there aren't enough fines to cover the cost. See Subsection B. of Defect # 10.
In 2009 the contract was amended (approved 4 - 1 by Dickerson, McArthur, Stegall and Bosetti, with Jones voting "no") but cost neutrality was retained.

 
The Sept. 2011 decision in P. v. Daugherty said that cost neutral contracts like Redding's are illegal, a violation of CVC 21455.5(g), (as of 2013, 21455.5(h)) and gave Redding an opportunity to cancel the program, immediately, without paying an early-termination penalty.  The city council did not take advantage of that opportunity.

On June 3, 2012 highwayrobbery.net wrote to the city council, suggesting that they negotiate for a better price. 

On June 5, 2012 the city council approved the renewal of the contract for five years (approved 3 - 1 by McArthur, Sullivan and Bosetti, with Jones voting "no" and Dickerson absent), and agreed to pay $4500 rent per camera, which was way too high.  By failing to negotiate, the council will overpay by $630,000, compared to a $3000 target price.  To cover that extra rent, the City will need to issue an extra 6300 tickets (assuming that the City receives $100 of revenue from each ticket issued).  Also see FAQ # 17.

The contract has no escape clause (Termination for Convenience), something commonly found in other cities' contracts.  


2015:  Bonanza for RedFlex

The heavy ticketing from the new installation at Cypress/Hilltop brought in a lot of fine money to the City, but the City had to send nearly all of it to RedFlex, to pay down the $327,000 balance the City owed RedFlex because of the cost neutral terms of the contract.
The City's tally sheets (below) show that the balance was paid down to zero by Spring 2016.

Official Account Tally as of Mid-2015
Official Account Tally as of Late 2015
Official Account Tally as of Late 2016  

This list of contracts and amendments was up-to-date as of Dec. 1, 2016.
