Today, the Cook County Board will consider a contract that would lead to the installation of up to 30 red light cameras at 20 "accident-prone intersections." American Traffic Solutions and RedSpeed Illinois would be given the contract to install the cameras. The County is expecting to make a lot of revenue off of the cameras. Each ticket issue will carry a $100 fine. In an interesting note, American Traffic Solutions is based out of Scottsdale Arizona. Commissioners Edwin Reyes and Joseph Mario Moreno are pushing for a measure that would bar Cook County from doing business with any Arizona based companies.
