NC8 NCSITE Task Force Yellow Change Interval Communications

NCSITE Task Force Yellow Change Interval Communications

The smoking gun that the NCSITE Task Force does not know what their Formula means.

The NCSITE Task Force misapplies the Formula to left turning movements. In an explicit statement, NCSITE admits that they do not know how to model left turning movements. So instead of hiring a physicist to tell them how to model such a case, NCSITE guesses and guesses wrong. NCSITE uses the ITE Formula. But the ITE Formula does not provide enough yellow time for vehicular movements that require a vehicle to slow down before entering the intersection. The Formula only models straight-through movement vehicles that proceed unimpeded to and through the intersection at the maximum allowable speed (at least the speed limit).

On top of that error, NCSITE measures approach speed at the stop bar instead of at the critical distance thus violating a law of physics embedded in the Formula.

NCSITE invalidly assumes all vehicles in the left turn lane are in a queue. NCSITE assumes all these cars are going 22.9 mph. That assumption forces non-queued cars legally traveling unimpeded at > 22.9 mph at distances over 100 ft from the intersection with a green arrow in front of them, to run a red light.

NCSITE forces school buses to run red lights. By explicit design, NCSITE does not provide yellow durations which accommodate 'unique vehicle streams'. Vehicles with air-brakes, like school buses, are unique vehicle streams. By design, the yellow duration is 0.75 seconds too short for commercial truck drivers.

Compare old and new pages 2 and 4.

After confronting Cary's issuing of fraudulent citations at our hearing in January 2012, Cary decided not to chance Judge Ridgeway's adding a third class of 50,000 plaintiffs to the already existing lawsuit. And so Cary corrected the wording on the citation to match the law. According to the 2001 Wake County law, if the owner gets a ticket but the owner was not driving, the owner neither has to pay nor identify the driver. Though Cary fixed its citations, Raleigh still issues fraudulent citations.

Graphs of 140,000 citations--the field proof that the laws of physics apply. The amount of time drivers need to react to the onset of a yellow light depends solely on physics. The length of the yellow time is irrelevant. The amount of time drivers run the red light equals the difference between the amount of time required for physics minus the on-the-ground yellow time. The difference is v/2(a +Gg).

Knightdale Citation Fraud and Perjury Example-George Deaton's Ticket of the Midnight Sun

NC-K2 The Problem at Knightdale Blvd at Wide Waters

The Problem at Knightdale Blvd at Wide Waters

According to the Knightdale Police Department, crashes increased 78% at Knightdale Blvd at Wide Waters from 2003 to 2012. The red light cameras went up in 2004.

This March 4, 2013 ticket shows you why. The driver turning left got the ticket. It looks like he is running a yellow light. It is the signal heads, the angle of the road and the number of lanes that pose a visual problem: 1) The signal heads do not have back plates to make the signal indication stand out against the background. 2) Knightdale Blvd is wide road and the signal heads are relatively far away. 3) Because of the acute angle Widewaters Parkway makes with Knightdale Blvd, the straight-through lane signal heads are directly in front of the left-turning driver. The left turn signal heads face the left-turning driver only after he begins his turn. 4) There are two left turn lanes and one through lane, but there are two straight-through signal heads.

It all combines to create a serious visual problem for the driver. The driver thought he had a green light or at least a yellow.

Though not evident in this picture, the NCDOT creates another problem by setting the left-turn yellow change interval to 3.0 seconds. By the laws of physics, a left turning driver entering the intersection from this 35 mph -2% grade at 24 mph requires at least 4.2 seconds to traverse the critical distance.

This signal plan was drafted by NE Burns and signed by William Hamilton on August 26, 2011.

NC-K3 Knightdale Fraud and Perjury Example

Knightdale Committed Fraud

This exhibit is Safelight Knightdale red light camera citation issued December 21, 2012. It shows that Safelight Knightdale was issuing fraudulent tickets.

Mayor Russell Killen, Police Chief Jason Godwin, Town Attorney Clyde Holt and the Town Council of Knightdale, know that the Town of Knightdale committed fifty thousand of acts of fraud by sending out red light camera citations prohibiting vehicle owners their legal right to say, "I was not driving at the time and location on the citation." The owner does not have to pay, give up the driver or correct the time or location information on the citation. This legal right is granted by NC Session Law 2003-3(d)(1)c and Knightdale Town Code Section 74.03 (b)(3).

Beginning April 2013, the Town of Knightdale started wording its tickets legally though confusingly.

In November 2013, Knightdale terminated their red light camera program.

Fayetteville

NC-F1 Traffic Signal Plans

Traffic Signal Plans

Fayetteville restarted their red light camera program in July 2015. When we asked Fayetteville for the traffic signal plans, it sent these. From the plans we know that the NCDOT tampered with every intersection in the year before camera installation. The Fayetteville City Council also claimed that they had NCDOT's approval to install the cameras. The problem is, is that two of these signal plans are not signed by a professional engineer, and for the third one, some Fayetteville official went out of his to blot out the signature and seal of the engineer. Two of them have no legal approval, and Fayetteville intentionally is concealing the ID of the engineer who drew up the plans. We do not know what the City of Fayetteville is trying to hide, but our guess is that the City shortened the yellow lights.

NC-CAX Cary Shortens Yellows in Full Knowledge That Increases Red Light Violations

Cary Knows That Decreasing Yellow Light Durations Increases Red Light Cameras Violations. Cary and the NCDOT Shorten the Yellows Anyway, p. 13

in February 2006, Dick Moore, Cary's Traffic Systems Manager, raised the issue to the NCDOT that Cary does want to decrease the yellow light durations to 3.0 seconds because that increases the number of red light camera violations and creates a safety hazard. But Cary does it anyway.

As early as January 13, 2006 (p.11), Cary is voicing concerns over lowering yellow light durations.

NB Kildaire Farms at Cary Parkway Intro

The next several exhibits are movies showing the speed of cars entering the left turn bay. The speed limit on these roads is 45 mph. Cary and the NCDOT assert that all cars enter the left turn bay going 22.9 mph or less which Cary and NCDOT use to justify setting the yellow light to 3.0 seconds--the duration for a 22.9 approach speed. Therefore anybody traveling down the left turn bay faster than 22.9 mph will be faced with a type 1 dilemma zone. If the driver is in it when the light turns yellow, Cary will force that driver to run a red light.

The speeds of unimpeded left turn drivers in the Kildaire Farm Rd. videos: 34, 32, 35, 39, 35, 43, 37, 36 mph.

NC-CBI NCHRP Report 731

NCHRP Report 731 - Guidelines for Timing Yellow and All-Red Intervals at Signalized Intersections

On page 41 (Table 21) and page 58, the report tells traffic engineers to plug speed limit - 5 mph into "v" for left-turn yellows in the yellow change interval formula. NCHRP measures "v" at the critical distance. The authors of this paper got this aspect of the formula correct. This aspect in itself nullifies the North Carolina DOT practice of using the stop bar speed (23 mph) for "v".

Three authors of this report are the same as the ones who criticized my paper, Derivation of the Yellow Light Equation. These authors plus the another author, Richard Retting, still misunderstand the use of the formula. The formula does not apply to any situation which requires a driver to decelerate before entering the section such as turning drivers. For turning drivers, the formula always cuts short the yellow duration by up to 80%. It is of no surprise that Richard Retting approves this paper. Retting is the "father of the red light camera in America."

Lori Millette's Citation

Ms. Millette represents all turning drivers who paid the red light camera fine. Millette represents about 80,000 drivers. The Town of Cary assumes all turning drivers approaching the intersection approach at no greater than 22.9 mph from 294 feet back from the stop bar. Using that assumption Cary sets the yellow duration to 3.0 seconds. 3.0 seconds is for a 22.9 mph car. Nobody goes that slow that far back. Cary entraps them all.

Brian Ceccarelli's Citation

Ceccarelli runs the red light by 0.38 seconds. Literally the blink of an eye. The yellow duration at the intersection is at least 0.5 seconds short of North Carolina's legal requirement. The Town of Cary illegally punished over 8559 drivers just at this one intersection. Though the Town of Cary's traffic engineer admits the error and admits that it has been going on since 1991 (read Spencer's Confession above), Cary still denies it in court.
