- Just weeks after Chicago lowered the threshold for speed camera tickets to just six miles over the speed limit, one alderman wants the city to reverse course. Right now, anyone caught going six to nine miles over the limit faces a $35 ticket. 11 miles over is a $100 fine. Alderman Anthony Beale now wants the city to go back to only issuing tickets to drivers caught going 10 miles over the speed limit. He says the current system targets those who can least afford it.
