CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Speed cameras will begin issuing tickets next week in a “Children’s Safety Zone” near Ogden Plaza Park in Streeterville.

Automated Speed Enforcement cameras at 449 and 450 N. Columbus Dr. near the park have completed a “warning phase” and will begin issuing tickets on Tuesday, July 1, according to a statement from the Chicago Department of Transportation.

On Monday, new ASE cameras will begin issuing warnings for a 30-day period near Calumet Park at 3535 and 3542 E. 95th St. in the East Side neighborhood on the South Side.

Children’s Safety Zones are designated within 1/8th of a mile of parks or schools, the statement said. Near parks, enforcement hours occur during the hours those parks are open, typically from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.

Vehicles traveling 6-10 mph over the posted limit will be fined $35, and vehicles traveling more than 11 mph over the limit will be fined $100.
