Traffic Report

Live in or near Chicago, or planning to drive here any time soon? Then you need to know about Chicago's traffic cameras. I got this email from a friend this morning:

I am forwarding this to you speed demons who live and travel in the city. ;-)

For all of you speed angels out there. Please watch out. I got a ticket in the mail from the camera at 55th and Western. They are not playing... They sent with the ticket several pictures of my car, my license plate and me going through the "YELLOW" light. I guess I got busted. The ticket was $90 and because I didn't pay it or contest it within a couple of weeks it doubled to $180.

Be blessed and careful, Ruby

I've seen the flashes from the camera on 79th & Kedzie go off twice so far (while going northbound on Kedzie), but after the light has been green for a good 30 seconds. No idea why it went off either time as the lights were green for a good amount of time before they went off and green for a good amount of time after.
