    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.

    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.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel took a "small step" by tripling the "grace period" before slapping motorists who blow through red lights with $100 tickets, but the change does not go nearly far enough, an influential alderman said Tuesday. Ald.

    Study: Red Light Cams Improve Safety, Have "Spillover Effect" on Other Intersections
    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.
