    Not having red light tickets show on a driving record is a compromise of sorts. In some areas where it did people complained that they were not the one driving at the time and it was unfair to have their driving record show the tickets and increase their insurance rate. Some tickets got thrown out by judges who agreed. Rather than eliminate red light camera tickets or have to deal with the issue above, most places with red light cameras do not put violations on driving records. The ticket essentially is issued to the car (and the fine levied against the owner of it), like parking tickets are.

    Just spoke with a group of police outside my condo...according to them, there's a ton of gang activity going on in the Edgewater Glen area lately...and not only the murder at Glenwood and Devon, where an innocent person was killed.
    There was also a murder at Foster and Kenmore a few days ago. It used to be that most of this activity had been occurring on the that side of Broadway, but now many of the gang related crimes reported are west of Broadway.
    As a matter of fact...I had just come in from this evenings walk with my dogs only minutes before I heard all the gun fire. I thought to myself...Wow...I'm lucky not to have been caught right in the middle of that mess!!! I mean really!
    So...now what do we do...when we don't feel safe living in our neighborhood anymore.

    I heard five shots. I live on the S/E corner of Elmdale/Glenwood. The building on the N/W corner was all taped off and I heard there were shots that hit the building and a car parked in front of it. My sister lives in the middle of the 1400 block of Elmdale and she saw a (living, breathing) man loaded on a stretcher and put in the ambulance. There were lots of cops, quite a few white shirts for a while. The cops I saw were (a) shining lights all over the building on the N/W corner that may have been hit and (b) looking for shell casings. I also saw Osterman with his dog talking to the cops (Osterman lives a block away). The cops are still out there.

    I don't know how anyone could kill someone with a car after an accident like this could ever again sleep at night. I myself would sink into a deep depression if I did that to a dog or cat. I hate to tell you how many times I've swerved quickly for animals. The thought of killing ANYTHING (except bugs) makes me very uneasy.
    Still, you pose an interesting point. I am very curious as to how the law will handle this incredibly reckless and heedless human being.
