Obscured red-light cameras costing Illinois drivers unnecessary money

Austin Berg, director of content strategy for the nonpartisan Illinois Policy Institute said the cameras are inaccurate.

“It’s clear local governments are using red-light cameras as cash machines to pad their budgets. Illinoisans have paid mightily for a program that is a vehicle for corruption rather than safety. There is little oversight or transparency for red-light camera operations, which has made these programs ripe for abuse. Illinois lawmakers should do right by taxpayers by abolishing them, just as other states across the nation are doing.”
