    Yes, Miss Colleen. Lots of people against who yelled and railed and talked over anyone whom they disagreed with. A totally polite and civil crowd, many from miles away. Is there anyone from the opposition who is polite enough to permit the other side to state their case?

    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.

  • Study: red light cameras are a great way to collect money form hard-working people coming and going to their jobs. Speed cameras are even better to money-grab.

    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.

    Bob Kastigar,

    Ya might want to reread my comment as well as MJK's comment. I initially suggested leaving 10 minutes early as a wise habit to adopt. MJK's response to me remains obtuse and indiscernable.

  • Barb T Leo

    David Forgue,

    It sounds like you are the Danica Patrick of our area. No wonder you display some impatience with those less skilled. Again leaving 10 minutes early addresses your concerns regarding the occassional viccissitudes of urban motorized travel. Should you take my free advice and arrive early I suggest always having a book along. I recommend the short stories of Flannery O'Connor for starters.
