    Interesting choices of placement…..I wonder when they will put them in neighborhoods where wealthy people live….or even downtown or near the Gold Coast.

    This is so pathetic. Trying to create ways to make more $ to steal. Wish I could leave IL altogether. Ppl on the street think they gangsters, but this is robbery at its best! Thx Quinn and Emmanuel for showing us a true theft from the ppl.

    Now more than ever Chicagoans needs to buy warning devices to protect themselves against these devices. They should go to the internet and look for radar detectors. There are very inexpensive ones that will warn them against red light cameras and speed cameras. This is all They can do to fight back since in Chicago the people do not run the government. They vote like robots without understanding the consequences. I have a lead foot and I haven't gotten a ticket for speeding for over 20 years. I do not speed around schools or neighborhoods, it is mostly in the tollway.

    Yet another way for Chicago to bleed us dry for more money. I am also confident that "street cleaning" only exists to give people tickets as well.
