Speeders beware: you get one more warning before speed cameras at Gompers Park on the Northwest Side start issuing tickets for $35 to $100. It won’t be long before cameras at three other parks start issuing tickets, either.
Monday is the first day for Chicago’s speed cameras to go into action – and begin issuing warning tickets to drivers.
Special cameras will begin issuing warnings to speeders near four city parks as early as late next week. Actual ticketing won’t be far behind.
On a recent day, they say, Chicago police and Immigration showed up and hauled seven workers away.
