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.
