    Chicago Drivers Are Getting A Bit More Leeway On Running Red Lights
    Today looks like it was a win for both advocates of safe streets and opponents of nickel-and-dimed revenue generation. The city announced that it would raise the grace period for cars passing through a red light-to the joy of Chicago drivers-while keeping that grace period at a safe and reasonable length-to the joy of Chicago pedestrians who enjoy remaining in one piece while crossing an intersection.

    Study: Red light cameras make Chicago streets safer; some may be relocated
    Chicago's red light cameras help make driving safer in Chicago, according to a study released Monday by the Northwestern University Transportation Center. The report found "significant safety benefits" and recommended the continuation of the program. The study recommended that the city extend the time allowed before issuing a ticket once the light turns red.

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    Don't speed, don't run red lights and you won't get a ticket and it won't cost you anything. The only people who complain are those that get tickets, and only those who break the law get tickets.

    Slow down, save lives.

    "I got hit on 87th Dan Ryan because I didn't make a complete stop before I made a right-hand turn."

    While red light cameras have been proven to save lives in other cities, in recent years Chicago's program has come under constant criticism. Some of it has been warranted, such as the Chicago Tribune's investigative series that exposed the bribery scheme involving former camera vendor RedFlex and Chicago Department of Transportation official John Bills.

    Some of the lights need their timing checked...seems in some areas the count down from 5 is more a 1/2 second than what it is supposed to be.
