City of West Hollywood Documents
(and Information)

West Hollywood, pop. 38,000, is 5 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.


It may be possible to completely ignore a West Hollywood ticket!

1.  If your "ticket" does not have the Superior Court's name and address on it, it is a fake ticket, which I call a "Snitch Ticket."  For more details about Snitch Tickets, see the Snitch Ticket section at the top of the Your Ticket page
.
2.  The LA County Superior Court does not report ignored red light camera tickets to the DMV.  More info is in "Countywide Information," which is Docs Set # 2 on the LA County Documents page.



2017:  Did you get a right turn ticket in WeHo?  If so, see Ticketing Highlights, below.



Yes, this is the webpage with a LOT of info about tickets from the red light cameras in West Hollywood. 

But first, this important political announcement ...



In 2018, Vote No on Sheila Kuehl

Do you live in LA County?  Was Zev Yaroslavsky your County Supervisor?  (Until Nov. 2014, he represented the Third District, which includes the central and western San Fernando Valley, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Beverly Hills, the City of West Hollywood, and part of Hollywood.)

Zev "termed out," and in the Nov. 2014 election, Sheila Kuehl won the race to succeed him, by a narrow margin.

Sheila Kuehl authored 3 speed
                camera bills
Sheila "Kuehl Cams" Kuehl, in 2007

During her career in the California Legislature, Kuehl made three attempts to pass bills to allow the use of automated speed enforcement (photo radar) in California.

As an LA County Supervisor, she has a seat on the MTA/Metro board and she will be a vote to continue and expand Metro's huge (101 cameras, so far) red light camera system. 

In 2016 she voted to put an additional LA County-wide sales tax, to go to Metro, on the Nov. 2016 ballot.  (See Measure M on the Action/Legis page, for more about that tax.)

Kuehl will be up for re-election in Nov. 2018 and Nov. 2022.

Beginning in July 2017:  Right Turn Enforcement, Supposedly with Tight Guidelines

In a Mar. 15, 2017 article the Beverly Press reported that according to a City transportation engineering technician, "as of now, rolling right turns will not face penalties."  However, in a May 8, 2017 article (archived copy) wehoville.com reported that the sheriff was proposing to enforce on right turns, and then the question was put on the agenda of the June 5 city council meeting.

May 24 WeHoVille Article   (Archived Copy)
June 1 WeHoVille Article   (Archived Copy)
Staff Report for June 5 Council Meeting   Attachment

The council approved right turn enforcement by a vote of 4 - 1.
Minutes of June 5 Council Meeting

 The following day the City Engineer emailed Gatso and listed the situations in which a right turn ticket would be issued.  From that email:

"Some of the City Council members were hesitant about implementing the change.  However,
after much discussion, the City Council authorized moving forward with issuance of

citations for non-stopping right turns on red only for situations where the Los Angeles
County Sheriff's Department identifies a public safety concern.  Based on information
presented by Deputy Miles at the meeting, situations where there is a public safety concern
include but may not be limited to a motorist making a non-stopping turn in the presence of
pedestrians; the motorist making a non-stopping turn causing a conflict with a vehicle that
is legally in the intersection; and a motorist making a non-stopping turn with some other
safety condition (i.e. crossing over several lanes of traffic).  These incidents with the
public safety concerns should not involve violations with vehicle speeds under 10 mph."
(Underlining added by highwayrobbery.net)

If you receive a right turn ticket from West Hollywood and the photos don't show one of the situations underlined above, please contact me.

Sample WeHo Ticket - and a Special Kind: Gridlock

During a visit to the courthouse, I talked to a lot of defendants and many of them showed me their tickets.
The first thing I noticed was that you can't read the numbers on the tickets that WeHo mails to defendants.  The very critical tenths digit is a smaller font size, so no one could tell for sure how late they were after the red, or how long the yellow was.  The tenths digits were not legible on any ticket I saw - and we looked at them in good sunlight, with as many as two pairs of reading glasses at once!  A
sample ticket posted by the West Hollywood sheriff illustrates the illegibility.

Trial Transcript

I attended the June 19, 2003 trial session for West Hollywood tickets, and purchased a copy of the official tape of that session ($10.00).
The first part of the tape has now been transcribed, and is available here:

It is a good way to find out how an actual trial goes.

WeHo's Business Rules (Guidelines?)

Vehicle Code Section 21455.5 requires that a city shall develop "uniform guidelines for screening and issuing violations."  We have obtained a copy of WeHo's "Business Rules for the Red Light Camera System," which appears to that sort of document.  However, 21455.5(d) says that the development of the guidelines may not be contracted out to the supplier of the cameras, and the language of WeHo's Business Rules is full of indications that it was written by the supplier.  (See Defect # 10.)

The Contract - Paying Too Much - and Fewer Cameras in Early 2017

1999 Contract & RFP Memo
2000 Amendment
2010 Amendment (five year extension)

  In the 2010 contract, the City agreed to pay WAY too much rent - approx. $2597 per camera per month.  For example:  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

  Under the 2010 - 2015 contract, WeHo paid 73% too much (compared to the Elk Grove price schedule, before any adjustment for economies of scale - the contract was for 18 cameras) over the five years of the extension, $1,184,616 extra.  To cover that extra rent, WeHo needed to issue an extra 15,188 tickets (the City's fine revenue averaged $78 for each ticket it issued, in 2013).
For more info about how much cities pay for their cameras, see FAQ # 17.


2015:  New Contract, New Vendor, Same Total Rent for Fewer Cameras

The contract was to expire in June 2015, so at their Mar. 2, 2015 meeting the city council considered a staff recommendation to put the operation of the program out for bid. 
The Mar. 2 staff report promised an evaluation of the program, but only after the signing of the new contract.
The council (with one member absent and one seat vacant) adopted the staff recommendation, 3 - 0, without any discussion other than Mayor D'Amico saying, "I would like to note my 'no' vote."

A new
staff report presented at the Sept. 21 council meeting recommended accepting a bid from Gatso USA (a Massachusetts company with no other customers in California) for the operation of eight cameras at $4943 each per month, for five years, with the ability to cancel without penalty after three years.  The staff report promised a short changeover period:

"Because this equipment is wireless, construction work is minimized, enabling deployment and start of the program for West Hollywood in less than three months from the start of the
contract." (Page 4 of staff report)

SaferStreetsLA submitted a detailed
report suggesting that the program be discontinued.

The council voted 3 -2 (ayes:  Duran, Horvath, Heilman) to accept the staff recommendation.   The council was given no information about the bid by the incumbent vendor, Xerox/ACS - how much they bid, what equipment updates they may have offered.  (In 2014 Beverly Hills chose them as their new vendor.) There was no bid from ATS, the largest camera company in the US.

The City agreed to pay Gatso nearly twice as much rent, per camera, as it had been paying Xerox/ACS.  That monthly rent will set a quota - to break even the city will need to issue more tickets per camera.
During the five years the City will need to issue 25,000 tickets just to cover the rent owed Gatso, plus another 10,000 tickets to cover the cost of staff (equaling 583 tickets a month).  Those tickets will bear $17.5 million in fines.

Under the Gatso contract
(signed copy) the number of cameras dropped from 18 to eight.  Initially, Gatso's cameras are to monitor the eight approaches marked "G" in Set # 1 above, but they may end up at other locations, including the former locations marked "X," because the new contract (paragraph D7 in Exh. A) allows the City to move each camera once, without charge, during the five-year term.  (The five-year term was to begin when the cameras began operation, which was in early 2017.  Per a staff email, the contract will expire on Feb. 28, 2022. ) 

The Sept. 21, 2015 staff report provided no detail about the most important part of a camera program:  Is it saving lives?  The six page staff report had just two generalized statements about safety.  It said (on page two, middle), "The City has been successful in reducing accidents and violations throughout the 16 years of program operation."  And, at the bottom of that same page it said,  "Parameters studied included... 5-year accident history (both broadside and rear-end collisions), severity of injuries related to collisions, traffic volumes, and vehicle speeds."
That's all the staff report said about safety.  No camera-by-camera or year-by-year statistics from 16 years of operation during which the City issued 215,440 tickets bearing $100 million in fines.  No breakdown of accidents by type (broadside, rear-end), severity, or whether they were actually caused by red light running - or something else.    

The new contract contains no provision for the issuance of Snitch Tickets, the investigatory "Courtesy Notice" forms recognized in SB 1303 of 2012.  Absent access to the Snitch Ticket tool, the City will have just two poor choices when there's an obvious mismatch between the pictured driver and the registered owner.  1.  File charges against the registered owner, without Probable Cause.  2.  Reject the violation.


Early 2017:  Gatso's Cameras Started, After Long Delay

T
here was a long delay before Gatso's cameras began operation - caused in part by some bumbling and by the need to
have Edison build an electrical service for each camera.
  A Dec. 1, 2016 email from the City to Gatso said:

"Great news... Edison has notified the City that they will be energizing the two service pedestals on La Cienega Blvd. on December 6th.  These pedestals will supply power to the two rear
cameras on La Cienega Blvd. at Melrose Avenue."
Emails about the Delay

On Mar. 9, 2017 the City announced that the cameras would begin issuing warning tickets on Mar. 13 and that real tickets would begin on Apr. 11.
