We See Cameras...EVERYWHERE
The map the city of Chicago is sending out with its “request for proposals” shows just how extensive coverage by cameras designed to catch speeders around parks and schools could be — if the city ever exercises all its options.
Not to worry, city officials say: Aldermen mandated that cameras go up in only 50 to 300 locations for now.
“By ordinance, we are limited to placing these cameras in only 20 percent of the 1,500 possible Children’s Safety Zones — that’s only 300 camera [sites] citywide,” said Pete Scales, spokesman for the city’s Department of Transportation. “We expect to only have about 50 of those up and running next year.”
Really? Have you seen the map?
Holy crap! If you believe this isn't solely about the revenue, we have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.
