The Chicago Red Light Camera System involves collecting millions of dollars from citizens. So it goes without great surprise that there would be bribes given and bribes taken. As reported by the Tribune’s David Kidwell:
“The former City Hall manager who ran Chicago’s red-light camera program was arrested today on federal charges related to the investigation of an alleged $2 million bribery scheme involving the city’s longtime vendor, Redflex Traffic Systems.
A federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court today accused John Bills of taking money and other benefits related to the contract with Redlfex. Mayor Rahm Emanuel fired the company amid the bribery scandal.”
That’s how we roll in Chicago. Rob the poor and give to the rich – all in the name of ‘traffic safety’
