Slideshow of Red Light Camera Protest, Chicago, Feb. 14

Feb. 16, 2010 - Update: Illinois Senate Transportation Committee Chair calls for public hearings Senator Sandoval promised, in the record, to hold public hearings within two weeks on SB 2466, a bill to ban red light cameras statewide. SEE PRESS RELEASE... The Valentine's Day protest against red light cameras in Chicago was great, with a nice turnout of about 60 people (my estimate), thousands of flyers handed out to passing motorists and - surprisingly - a good showing from the local media. While the event was organized by Republican Scott Tucker, who is running for IL State Rep (11th District), it was not a "Republican event." Liberal candidate for governor William Dock Walls was there, working side by side with Tucker and other Republicans to support Illinois Senate Bill 2466, which would ban red light cameras statewide. See my slideshow of the protest, followed by links to some other blogs that have their own good photos. Also see our video of the event.
