Illinois lawmakers want photo radar in construction zones

| 8/8/2003

Three Illinois lawmakers say they plan to introduce a bill to allow photo radar in construction zones, The Daily Herald reported.

Rep. Paul Froehlich, R-Schaumburg, Sen. John Cullerton, D-Chicago, and Rep. John Millner, R-Carol Stream, announced their plans to introduce the bill after a construction crew flagger was killed by a passing car in the Chicago suburbs.

Froehlich told the newspaper he expected the cost of the cameras to be paid for by fines generated by speeders they catch.
