Camera violation numbers dropping only slightly Real tickets set to start next Monday, Sept. 30 PAWTUCKET – Preliminary data is showing that there were another 12,000 traffic camera violation warn- ings over five weekdays last week, a slight decrease over the opening week of the program but a situation still setting the stage for huge vol- umes of tickets when the program goes live next week. Wilder Arboleda, spokesman for Mayor Donald Grebien, said the 13,000 violations previously reported by The Breeze were for four days on the Labor Day week, with Labor Day, Sept. 2, not included in those figures. Last week, including five days, saw an average of 2,400 warnings handed out each day, while the first week saw 3,250 warnings sent out daily. Officials did not provide data for the week in between. "It's trending downward slightly, but there are concerns at the high amount," said Arboleda.
