Illinois to ready to roll out camera vans again

| Friday, April 13, 2007

For the second year in a row, Illinois is rolling out special enforcement camera vans to ticket speeders in construction zones.

Last year, the Illinois State Police used three camera-equipped vans to ticket 4,000 drivers, according to a press release. This year, there will be four vans.

The white vans have State Police markings and are accompanied by digital signs that display the speeds of passing cars.

Three of the units will work construction zones in the Chicago area, while the fourth will head further south, according to the state’s Department of Transportation.
