IL may bring speed surveillance cameras to your town.

Amendment Could Bring Enforcement To Suburbs
By Parking Ticket Geek

That didn’t take long.

When Mayor Rahm Emanuel fast tracked legislation in Springfield to allow Chicago to employ speed camera enforcement within 1/8 of a mile of schools and parks back in November, drivers wondered if and when speed cameras would come to their town.

Now, less than three months later, speed cameras may be expanding into towns outside Chicago.

In a recently introduced amendment to SB0952 sponsored by Senator Antonio Munoz (D-Chicago), other Illinois municipalities may be able to utilize the same enforcement technology Mayor Emanuel pushed so hard for if the bill can make it through the Illinois General Assembly.

Munoz cites Mayor Emanuel’s work to bring speed camera enforcement to Chicago as the inspiration for the bill.
