Officials to install more speed cameras in 'Child Safety Zones'

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

In the next few months, the city of Chicago will have 12 more speed cameras near parks and schools.

The Chicago Department of Transportation announced the new locations for the cameras Thursday as part of the 'Children's Safety Zone Program.'

Drivers who are caught going six to ten mph over the posted speed limit in a safety zone are slapped with a $35 fine. If drivers are caught going more than 11 mph over the speed limit, they must pay a $100 fine.

Once the cameras are activated, only warning tickets will be issued for the first 30 days. CDOT says Chicago has issued more than 1.25 million warning to drivers and 230,000 tickets since the program began in August of 2013.

Here is a list of the locations with the new cameras:
