-- a bay area city is voiding hundreds of tickets. all because we uncovered a it turns out you may be off the hook for running that red light. all because we uncovered a problem with those red light cameras. >> tickets are being ripped apart and money is being refunded. tony is joining us now with the exclusive investigation and this is a lot of money for a lot of people, tony. >> a lot of money coming back right now. this all unfolded because an nbc bay area viewer saw a report we did almost four years ago. he took his case to court and won and we used that information to ask tough questions to decisionmakers in san mateo. >> is it difficult to do this interview right now? >> it's always difficult to talk about mistakes that have occurred can. >> he's trying to explain why the san mateo police department missed it. >> it would have been nice for
us to have caught it ourselves. >> and he's trying to understand why the city's public works department also didn't catch it. the problem, this traffic light and this traffic light and these red light cameras. >> i opened it and the first thing i saw was the $540 price and i -- i didn't know what to say. i was kind of shock. i didn't have the money for that. >> the story starts with andre clemens and this tickets for running a red light back on january 13th of this year at this intersection across the street from the san mateo police department. >> and there was a picture of that ticket? there was. and it was clearly me. >> that's andre's picture on this $540 ticket. instead of paying the fine, he decided to fight. >> i won because i presented my evidence and i backed every single one up. i had proof. dy the job the officer should have done. >> he sgaurd records of it is city, review the information
from the ticket and argued the citation and the red light camera were invalid. he told the judge the city failed to document the average speed and with no speed survey, the timing of the yellow light was not accurate. >> what does the video show? >> twlee seconds in two frames which translates to 3.066 seconds. >> standard regulations show the yellow light should have lasted at least 3.2 seconds. a judge considered andre's evidence and dismissed the tickets. that ticket back in january, a judge threw it out. why? >> the true answer is we don't know. >> nbc bay area has learned the san mateo police department never investigated the reason the judge dismissed andre's ticket. >> 0.66 seconds. >> instead, it continued issuing red light tickets at that same intersection. >> is it acceptable for 2 city not to make changes after you won in court? >> they're breaking the law. they're charging us $540 a ticket for it. it's absolutely unacceptable.
there's no justification for it at all. >> mr. clemmett argued in court that that light was not timed properly and he won. >> okay. >> should you not know why he won at this point? >> we can only speculate because we don't have the judge's comments. >> how unusual is this kind of result? >> i think without an attorney, this is a very unusual result. >> community activist jay bieber has helped end red light camera programs throughout california. he also helped andre prepare for his court appearance. >> i think it's unconsciousble that the government knows it is doing something wrong. it's been shown that they're wrong, it's been showing that their yellow light timed is not correct. yet they continue doing this day after day, week ar week, month after month. >> before we started asking questions about this ticket, was this department looking into the issue?
no. in fact, we appreciate the fact that nbc braus this fact to our attention. we thought we were in compliance. >> and that confidence in the timing of this red light camera diminished when nbc bay area sent this reports request. a series of questions about the city's red light camera operations. >> embarrassing to have to admit you made a mistake? >> it's always difficult to have to admit that we made a mistake. what's important to us is how we fix it. >> and during the past three months, our investigation also discovered inconsistent yellow light times at the intersection where andre got the ticket. >> that's where all four of these times are different. and we're trying to ask why. >> like i said, that's worth looking at. >> responding to our questions, the city started looking closer. it suspended the red light cameras for two days. checked the timing and found two lights mistimed, out of compliance, in violation of state regulations, including the
intersection where andre got his ticket. >> whose mistake is this? is it a police mistake? is it a public works mistake? >> i can tell you that when mistakes happen, as a city organization, we take that as a team. >> san mateo ultimately discovered nearly ,000 invalid red light camera tickets issued at this light at saratoga and hil hillsdale, the city now tearing up the tickets because the yellow lights did not meet regulations, requiring the city to tear up the tickets and refund more than $500,000. >> what does that say? >> it's unfortunate, but it's something that we can't go back in time with something that we're going to have to move forward and put measures in place so it doesn't happen again. >> so the city has refunded all tickets issued after august 1st, but questions still remain about the tickets the city issued during the month after andre's
difficult and before the city corrected the record. can you tell nbc bay area that you'll investigation the timing of his ticket? >> we have already investigated the timing of his ticket and every wag in compliance -- >> but a judge through it out. >> the timing was in compliance both before and after. and we have documentation to show that. >> we asked the judge to show why. he said andre's video showing the questionable timing but he decided not to go into the specifics. yes, the city has thrown out nearly a thousand tickets, but now there may be questions about thousands of others. if you have questions or comments about this red light situation, i'll be on periscope to answer your questions and talk about what we just brought in in the area in about five minutes. >> that would be a lot of investigations for all those tickets. >> a lot of investigates.
they're going to look into it. but if a judge throws it out, i think they deserve an answer to what happens and why. thank you, john. >> if you have a tip for tony or anyone else in our investigative unit, give us a call. 888-996 tips or send us an e-mail directly to the unit at nbc bay area.com. did you feel it? we're getting a lot of calles and facebook messages right now. a small earthquake in the south bay in the east foot hits of san jose. no reports of any injuries or damage. but plenty of people feeling movement. 2 of 6. >> turn things over to jeff ranieri. how are those storms looking? and are we expecting any more of these lightning strikes we've been having? >> the worst of the storm system is now gone. we have a little bit of instability back behind it. we may see this hold up through
downtown santa cruz over the next 20 to 25 minutes and possibly a slim chance of maybe through san martin, through gilroy, a little shower activity if it holds up through the higher elevations. ourselves, back behind that, clear and scold conditions coming down from canada. tomorrow morning, down to 36 in the morth bay, possibly some patchy frost. 39 for the east bay and begin, 42 in the peninsula and slightly cooler here in the south bay. snow is stacking up. our weather watcher at kirkwood saying 14 to 23 inches from the latest storm system from the base up towards the summit. that now makes two storms in two weeks and our total is anywhere from 2 to 4 feet. that is phenomenal. i'd like for it to stay this active all week long, but as i've been saying all day long, there's no way that's going to happen. so let's go ahead and get a look at the forecast for tomorrow. the cold and wet storm, that
area of upper low pressure moves off towards the east. that makes way for that cool sunshine tomorrow. don't expect a big warm-up. and we'll stay with this mild trend through saturday's forecast. but yet again, like we've seen for the past two weeks, but sunday, we get a storm system coming down here from the north and it looks like by sunday evening, showers with a better chance of rainindications show quarter inch out of that storm. on your forecast as we head throughout tomorrow, upper 50s and low 60s for san francisco. nice day in pal alto at 66. north bay, east bay and tri valley, best weather up here towards the north bay. 64 and 67 expected in santa rosa. in fact, 60s all around. jacket to start, jacket to finish the day. and by the this weekend, dry weather through saturday, but that chance of showers arriving by sunday evening with temperatures dropping back down into the 60s. this is the first time does she i don't know in how long we've
