Chicago Considers Increasing Red Light Camera Fines
Today, a proposal to increase the cost of a red light camera ticket from $100 to $125 was weighed in committee. The additional $25 is for the violator to attend some sort of driver’s education class.
If you choose to ignore taking the class, your fine then increases by an additional $50 to make your fine $175.
One problem may be that current video technology cannot identify the driver of the vehicle. Tickets are issued to the registered owner of the vehicles.
