Rafael Documents (Program Closed)
Some of San Rafael'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.

 Totals are as provided by the City.
 Annual total, or annual projection, is by highwayrobbery.net.
 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 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 was requested on:
 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.
 For this 18-month period, the statistics compiled by the City - see link above - show that during the period there were 2252 right turn violations recorded by the cameras and between 2842 and 5372 left turn violations, making turning violations represent between 51% and 76% of the total. (Please note that these statistics are of violations recorded, not citations issued.)

"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 picture above is an example from another city.
