THE REJECTION RATE SCAM!
The Rejection Rate Scam is where a scamera Vendor (or City) INTENTIONALLY MANIPULATES the number of VIOLATIONS by use of the REJECTION RATE.
This came out into the news last year in Baytown, TX where ATS and the City INCREASED the REJECTION RATE to make it seem like RLV were going "down". http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/31/3173.asp
The REJECTION RATE SCAM can be played one of two ways:
A. Either increase the number of violations you reject (like Baytown)
B. Or you STOP REJECTING ANY RLV Triggers of any kind.
In fact I strongly suspect that is what vendors do in their SURVEYS to pump up the violation numbers. Then if they get a contract, those "violation" numbers can be adjusted down by police "review" of tickets (or themselves).
A GREAT Example of this was in Mukilteo, WA when they calimed to have a "massive" RLV problem which turned out to be right turns on reds!
ATS VP (former now) Kroske WAS SO UPSET when the city enginneer mentioned the fact that most of the "violations" were REALLY NON DANGEROUS RIGHT TURNS, KROSKE CALLED THE MAN A "IDIOT". http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20110807/NEWS01/708079938
KROSKE: "I cannot believe this idiot sent this to WSDOT. (It) may have torpedoed the project,"
In fact you can see the ATS survey here in the PDF format: http://www.banthecams.org/attachments/1553_ATS%20Mukilteo%20survey.pdf
