City of Solana Beach Documents
Some of Solana Beach's tickets can 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, and Set # 1, below.
Recorded, Notices Printed, and Citations Issued
New 11-14-05, updated
On Nov. 12, 2005 the city
clerk's office supplied copies
of RedFlex invoices
containing monthly camera-by-camera totals of Citations Issued (filed
court). Those totals were
entered into the table, below, as "Total Citations Issued per
Invoices." Until 2009 the City paid $89 for each cite issued, up
cites per camera per month, and $80 each for additional cites.
Nominations (a.k.a. Snitch Tickets) probably explains,
See the table's footnotes for further details.
This table made by highwayrobbery.net, using official documents obtained under the California Public Records Act.
Official Tabulations, 2004 - 2010
Official Tabulations, 2010 - 2012
[ ] 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.
 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 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 Nominations mailed (not filed with the court, a.k.a. Snitch Tickets). Figures in blue type (or, if you are looking at this table in black and white, in italic type) are total Cites Issued (filed with the court), per RedFlex's monthly invoices to the City.
 Data for these months has not been requested.
 The camera enforcement is on traffic on the first-named street, but the direction of enforcement (north, south, east, west, thru, left) is not yet available.
 Data was requested on:
 The reports for these months omitted figures for camera 101L. We have asked for new reports.
 The report for this month was generated less than ten days after the end of the month, so may not reflect the full number of tickets issued.
Solana Beach Docs Set # 2
The City provided bar graphs
