Will hold a press conference today,December 22 at 10:00 a.m. at City Hall, 121 North LaSalle Street, 2nd Floor

After a Chicago Tribune study showed that the City’s red light camera program does not provide the safety benefits promised by the Emanuel administration, Citizens to Abolish Red Light Cameras, joined by Alderman and Mayoral candidate Bob Fioretti, call for an immediate shutdown of the program.

“The Chicago Tribune and Texas A&M study confirms what The Citizens To Abolish Red Light Cameras has been saying for two years,” said Mark Wallace, Director of Citizens to Abolish Red Light Cameras. “The city’s fraudulent red light camera and speed camera policy has nothing to do with safety at all. We don’t have an epidemic of children being struck by cars; we have a problem with children being struck by guns and bullets.”

“These cameras are brought to us by fraud, abuse and an ongoing federal investigation,” said Alderman Bob Fioretti. “You can’t balance the budget by giving away the public trust, and that’s what the Emanuel administration has done with these cameras. The proof is right here in front of us that this system doesn’t work and has been a burden on Chicagoans, and I will continue to work to lift it by eliminating this program.”

Who: Mark Wallace, Director, Citizens to Abolish Red Light Cameras, Alderman Bob Fioretti, Mayoral Candidate and Don Bransford, Public Relations Director, Citizens to Abolish Red Light Cameras
