Hundreds of speed cameras to be installed near schools, parks
The City of Chicago has finalized a contract to install hundreds of speed cameras near city schools and parks.
Mayor Emanuel says the new five-year agreement with “American Traffic Solutions” will discourage speeders, and raise millions of dollars in ticket revenue from those who refuse to slow down.
But the contract will be rolled out more slowly than originally planned.
As few as 50 of the new cameras will be put up in the first year.
