Illinois Drivers may see end of Automated Tickets from Red-Light Cameras (HB 322 and HB 323)

Drivers in Illinois could see red-light cameras banned if newly introduced bills gain momentum in Springfield.

State Reps. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, and Jonathan Carroll, D-Northbrook have signed on as chief co-sponsors to House Bills 322 and 323, both of which would restrict local governments’ use of red-light camera devices in Illinois.

HB 322 is limited. It would prohibit new devices or force removal of existing devices in municipalities without home rule powers in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Madison, McHenry, St. Clair and Will counties.
