‘Citizens in Chicago are costing the city tens of millions by obeying the law, giving credence to the notion that crime really does pay, and is not only profitable but necessary for the state to survive.
Over the last year Rahm Emanuel and company have flooded the city with speed cameras in an attempt to create a windfall of revenue generation.
Original estimates of revenue to be collected were upwards of $100 million but good drivers set back this greedy political goal $50 million. This shortage is in spite of the city’s best efforts to trick drivers into getting the tickets by placing the cameras in the proximity to schools and parks.
The tickets come with a $100 sticker price and the residents of Chicago got wise to this scam real quick.’
