Gov. Quinn Still Mulling Over Speed Camera Bill?
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn may deliver a belated Christmas present for Chicago drivers according to WBEZ Radio. Then again, maybe not.
The public radio station reports Quinn has been suspiciously quiet about the Illinois bill sitting on his desk which would allow Chicago to start using it’s red light camera system to start issuing $50 and $100 speeding tickets via the mail.
According to the story, Quinn has not even read the bill which was passed by the Illinois General Assembly back on November 9th, which now languishes on his desk awaiting his signature. As the article points out, the governor certainly has not tipped his hand on which way he’s leaning.
Hopefully, Quinn won’t give drivers an extra large, proverbial lump of coal at the bottom of the Christmas stocking by signing the speed camera bill.
