Speed cameras coming to Chicago's accident-prone intersections

The city also plans a 90-day education campaign with extra warnings built in

CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel's plan to use surveillance cameras to catch motorists who speed near schools and parks will start slowly with only a handful of accident-prone intersections, no more than 360 camera locations when the program is running at full tilt and two tiers of warnings to speeders, a top mayoral aide said Monday.

Transportation Commissioner Gabe Klein said motorists caught speeding during the first 30 days after cameras are installed will get warning notices, even if they are stopped repeatedly. After the 30-day break-in period, the first violation also would be a warning-only freebie, the commissioner said.
