CITY HALL — The city released the locations Friday of 50 speed cameras that will be operational at schools and parks by the end of the year.
"The Children’s Safety Zone Program protects children and other pedestrians by reminding motorists to slow down and obey speed laws — particularly in school and park zones," said Transportation Commissioner Gabe Klein.
Critics have called them a cash stream for the city. After an initial 30-day warning period at each location, speeders will be ticketed $35 for going 6-10 mph over the posted limit, or $100 for more than that.
Speed cameras at parks will enforce a daily 30 mph speed limit from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Those near schools will enforce a 20 mph speed limit weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., when children will have to be seen in the photograph of the speeding car. Otherwise a 30 mph speed limit until 7 p.m. will be enforced.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel budgeted $30 million in income from speed cameras this year.
