Speed Enforcement cameras near schools set to start Friday

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Come Friday, speeding tickets will be issued near schools thanks to Automated Speed Enforcement cameras placed at Children Safety Zones.

That translates into a $35 fine for anyone driving six to 10 mph over the speed limit at a Children's Safety Zone. Anything above that – 11 mph and above – will be a $100 fine, according to a release from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Three cameras are set to first appear at St. Rita High School. They will be located at 7739 and 7738 S. Western Ave. and 2550 W. 79th St., the release said.

Meanwhile, a total of six ASE cameras will be active March 16 at Lane Tech College Prep and Currie High School. Lane Tech's cameras will be located at 3521 and 3534 N. Western Ave. and 2549 W. Addison St.

The other three ASE cameras will be activated near Currie High School at 4929 and 5030 S. Pulaski Road and 4965 S. Archer Ave.

The Children's Safety Zones are designated within 1/8th of a mile from Chicago parks or schools, the release said.

The enforcement hours will be limited from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in safety zones around schools Monday through Friday, according to the release. A 20 mph speed limit will be in effect through 4 p.m. when children are present, with a 30 mph speed limit when no children are present and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The enforcement hours around parks will be limited to only those hours parks are open--typically 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week--with a 30 mph speed limit.
