This city's effort to catch red-light runners with computerized cameras at busy intersections was meant to reduce traffic accidents. What it has done, however, is provoke a civic backlash like few other issues in this politically placid city: a tangle of litigation, political foment, radio talk show meltdown, and now an embarrassing admission by the city that the controversial system has bugs.

After months of delay, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday awarded a hotly contested contract to Lockheed Information Management Services Co. for the processing and collection of parking tickets Councilman Nate Holden, the lone dissenter in the 10-1 vote, said the five-year, $49-million award was "one of the most wired deals to come before the City Council."

Sixteen months after pledging to use private companies to help locate parents who either are owed or are behind on their child support, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office Tuesday won approval of two $418,000 contracts to supplement its own $150-million operation. For five months, county supervisors--particularly Mike Antonovich, a political opponent of Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti--have been urging the prosecutor's office to produce the contracts for board approval.

A year ago, when Los Angeles contracted with Datacom Systems Corp. to collect delinquent parking tickets, the company projected it could collect 5% to 10% of the city's unpaid citations. Now, with unpaid fines reported at nearly $249 million, the company has collected $5.6 million--slightly over 2%--and has not yet resorted to the aggressive ticket collection methods spelled out in the contract.

An audit of the city of Los Angeles' system for collecting parking ticket fines found accounting deficiencies that may have resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in uncollected funds, officials said Wednesday. The review by City Controller Rick Tuttle blamed the city's office of parking management, which issues parking tickets, and the outside contractor that processes the tickets for the city--Lockheed Information Management Services Co. "This is a serious situation," Tuttle said.

Lockheed and Martin Marietta say their planned merger will accelerate both companies' post-Cold War expansion into commercial markets, but analysts are skeptical. The experts say the merger aims chiefly to create a leaner, meaner defense contracting giant. Beyond that, they figure, the consolidation is a chance for both firms to give their commercial ventures a long, hard look--then dump the ones that aren't solid moneymakers with roots in defense.

The heads of the panels--former Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher and retired state Supreme Court Justice John Arguelles--said they were seeking to distance themselves from the clash as the Police Commission forced Gates to take a leave.
