Calumet City Mayor Thaddeus Jones joined host Lisa Dent, who filled in for Bob Sirott. Last year, Gov. Pritzker signed the Tamara Clayton Expressway Camera Act, which required the state to install new cameras on the expressways. Lisa and Mayor Jones discussed the 200 license plate readers that are being installed in expressways. Mayor Jones also talked about the management of data, road rage, and more.
