Four more speed cameras activating next week

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Four new speed cameras will start issuing warnings to drivers next week in the Pilsen, Norwood Park, McKinley Park and North Lawndale neighborhoods.

The speed camera at 1440 W. Cermak Rd., near Benito Juarez Community Academy, will start issuing warnings to drivers Tuesday, the city said in a statement.

Three more speed cameras will be turned on Friday -- at 5739 N. Northwest Hwy. near Taft High School, at 6510 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. near Mulberry Park, and near Frazier Elementary at 4042 W. Roosevelt Road, 1110 S. Pulaski Rd. and 1117 S. Pulaski Rd.

Enforcement hours near schools are limited to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on school days only, the statement said. Cameras will issue tickets around parks when they are open, typically 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.

The cameras will issue warnings only for the first 30 days, and issue tickets after that, the city said. Currently, only drivers going 10 or more miles per hour over the posted limit will be ticketed.

That threshold will be lowered in the future, and ultimately drivers going 6 or more miles per hour over the limit will receive a fine, the statement said.

Fines are $35 for drivers going 6-10 miles per hour over the speed limit, and $100 for drivers going 11 or more miles per hour over the limit.
