UPTOWN — Speeders captured by two cameras installed last month in the 4400 block of North Broadway will start receiving tickets and fines instead of warnings, the city says.
The Automated Speed Enforcement cameras were activated at 4429 and 4446 N. Broadway on Dec. 6, but for the first 30 days they only generated warnings for speeding violations in the designated "Children's Safety Zone."
The city said in a written statement issued earlier this week that it would begin enforcement by initially issuing tickets for speeders going 10 or more miles per hour over the posted speed limit. However, that the 10-mile threshold would be gradually lowered.
Driving six to 10 miles per hour over the speed limit will earn you a $35 ticket, and driving 11 or more miles per hour over the speed limit will get you a $100 ticket, according to the city.
The enforcement hours are limited to 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
Revenue generated from ASE cameras will be invested in various after-school, anti-violence and jobs programs, as well as police and crossing guards near schools, and traffic safety improvements, according to the city.
