Chicago’s Top 10 Most Ticketed Red-Light Camera Intersections
Ever wanted to know where the Most Ticketed Red-Light Camera Intersections were? As part of an Inspector General report looking into the reasons behind Chicago’s placement of its nearly 400 red-light cameras and questioning whether they keep residents safe, it noted the number of tickets issued per intersection for 2016.
Thousands of Chicago drivers have been tagged with $100 red light fines they did not deserve, targeted by robotic cameras during a series of sudden spikes in tickets that city officials say they cannot explain, a Tribune investigation has found.
Chicago’s red light camera system grew to more than 350 cameras and has raised more than $500 million in $100 tickets since 2002. Tribune investigations beginning in 2012 have exposed corruption, failed oversight and inconsistent enforcement in the program.
There are nearly 400 cameras around the city. The top five most-ticketed intersections raised more than eight million dollars, and many of them are in some of the city’s busiest neighborhoods.
According to the report, the red-light camera program made around $61 million last year.
