If it seems like the yellow lights on Chicago's streets aren't as long as they used to be- you're right.
The city inspector general's independent investigation revealed Mayor Emanuel's administration quietly shortened yellow lights last spring.
That has generated an extra 77 thousand red light tickets.
The mayor's administration has now agreed to end the practice.

But it did not explain the sudden spikes in tickets which were uncovered by a Chicago Tribune investigation.
