More speed cameras are going into service this weekend in three more children’s safety zones in Chicago.

On Saturday, tickets will start being issued by automated speed enforcement cameras located at:

  • 3100 W. Augusta Blvd. near Humboldt Park
  • 2900 W. Ogden Ave. near Douglas Park
  • 445 W. 127th St. near Major Taylor Trail Park

The city will start enforcement by issuing tickets for speeders going ten miles over the posted speed limits. That threshold will gradually be lowered.

Fines will amount to $100 for speeds above ten miles an hour over the limit.

    As a service to Chicago drivers You can go on the internet and look for radar detectors. There are a lot of them (inexpensive) that will warn You when You approach these cameras. My last speeding ticket was about 15 years ago. I have a lead foot so I bought one of the best. A ticket will cost You a lot more than one of these devices. Chicago politicians are after your money so You need to fight back.

    How about putting more cops on the streets to fight the gangs, rapists and muggers instead of shaking down motorists? Oh, that's right! Stupid me! I forgot; The city is broke and they have to get money from somewhere! Well then, have a nice nap in the back seat of your cruiser parked in the Jewel parking lot, Officer O'Malley! That's O.k.; We're paying for it!
