Alderman Arena’s Statement on Removal of Some Red Light Cameras

“I applaud the Mayor’s decision to remove 50 cameras from the city’s red light camera program, include the camera at Foster and Elston, but we need to go further. I have advocated for a comprehensive reform of this corrupt money-grab for years. We need substantive hearings on whether the red light camera program should continue, along with reliable data on if the cameras are effective in improving public safety. I will continue to fight against corrupt programs like this and for openness and transparency throughout city government.”
