CHICAGO — The city is ticketing people for going 6 mph over the speed limit starting Monday.

Drivers will be fined $35 if a speed camera catches them going 6-10 mph over the speed limit and $100 if they’re going even quicker, according to the Mayor’s Office. Tickets are sent in the mail.

The change — backed by Mayor Lori Lightfoot — has been heavily criticized, with aldermen saying the mayor is “nickeling and diming” Chicagoans during a pandemic that’s hurt many people financially. The Mayor’s Office has said the change was needed to reduce speeding.

You can look up speed cameras in your area online.
