Slow Down! Speed Cameras hit Chicago

Mayor Emanuel has no intention to raise property taxes, but he will unleash the speed cams. Within the first 45 days, between four different speed cameras in Chicago, 233,000 speeders were caught. Luckily these drivers get a 30 day warning before getting charged. If everyone was fined, the city would’ve raked in $13.8 million. Is this an issue of safety or debt management?
