Chicago speed cameras to start issuing warnings today

The first of the city’s speed limit cameras are ready for service.

Drivers speeding around Gompers Park on the North Side will get warnings during the first 30 days. After that, tickets will start being issued.

This is the first of the cameras, with 50 other communities getting them as well.

The speed limit cameras are part of the city’s Children’s Safety Zone Program, which involves enforcing speed limits around parks and schools from 7 a.m. til 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The city plans to put up more cameras at Garfield Park on the West Side, Washington Park on the South Side, and Marquette Park on the Southwest Side by the end of next week.

    Chicagoland residents and visitors will soon discover that the speed cameras are located ONLY where the posted speed limits are arbitrarily set far below the speeds most drivers find to be, AND ARE, safe and comfortable. It is the only way the predatory speed camera cash registers can issue enough tickets to even pay their own costs, let alone produce the millions of dollars of profits that Chicago officials demand from their ticket camera cash register programs.

    Safety has nothing to do with these ticket camera programs, only $$$ count, some $400 million dollars worth from the red light camera program over the years. It is a total scam for $$$.
