Traffic Enforcement Cameras, The Chicago Way

From The Newspaper:

In Chicago, Illinois the city council on Wednesday voted 34-14 to implement Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposal to create the nation’s largest speed camera program. Owners of vehicles accused by a machine of driving a few miles per hour over the speed limit will be billed up to $100. Redflex Traffic Systems, the Australian firm that runs the existing red light camera program, has the inside track on landing the lucrative photo radar contract. As reported by TheNewspaper last year, Gregory Goldner, Emanuel’s campaign manager, runs the “Traffic Safety Coalition” front group for Redflex. Goldner’s public relations firm specializes in creating the appearance of grassroots support for unpopular legislation.
