I don’t know about all of you, but just recently I was driving over by Marquette Park and noticed a usual camera that was sort of in the cut. No, not that cameras by the traffic light that’s set to snap at any given second for just about any traffic movement at a red light. This new money maker which is technically known as Chicago’s Speeding Cameras but others refer to them as Sleeping Policemen. But you better believe, those cameras far from “sleeping.” Those cameras are true lurkers people, and will catch you when you least expect them, that’s why I call them “Traffic Paparazzi.” According to ABC News “Fines for violations are $35 for vehicles travelling 6-10 miles per hour over the posted speed limit while in a safety zone, and $100 for vehicles travelling 11 or more miles over the posted speed limit.”
You could be just driving along with traffic and decide to accelerate a extra 6 or 10 miles to keep up with traffic, out of nowhere…”Snap Snap Snap!” There goes Traffic Paparazzi. For all the people who don’t understand Kanye West’s hatred and dislike towards paparazzi, you definitely will now. It’s currently a few out there now but there’s definitely plans on installing more throughout the city. This right here make you want to just use public transportation or a bicycle.
In the famous words on Kanye “Pump Your Brakes And Drive Slow Homie.” Talk Ish…
