Possible revenue stream for Chicago?

At 5:30 a.m. cars on Lake Shore Drive travel at an average of about 65 MPH, and some are going 80 MPH. I believe the speed limit is 40 MPH to protect the roads, so why not install speed cameras to enforce the limit? Or if the high rate of speed isn’t bad for the roads, raise the speed limit so it isn’t so much of a joke.

    Red light cameras would not improve safety on LSD instead it would increase rear end collisions.
    This is why we have studies. In the hopes that people bother reading them before posting uniformed opinions.

Lead levels in the water in Lincoln Park

Hello, my husband saw a City of Chicago employee on Bissell Street today. The City of Chicago employee said he was testing the water for lead because it had shown high levels. Is this common knowledge in Lincoln Park? Should we not be drinking the water?

    Oddly, the city was doing some work on Fullerton (near Racine) over the summer and shortly after that work, my water pressure fluctuated greatly and my water turned a brownish color. I contacted the city and my alderman's office several times but was never able to get a straightforward answer. The water eventually turned back to a normal color, but again no answers. I did have my water tested by the city. They confirmed there was no bacteria, but never got back to me regarding the metal test. I've attempted to contact them several times. Needless to say, this hasn't left me confident.

    As many drivers in and around the City of Chicago know, red-light cameras have been installed on many of the intersections we navigate.
