Bid to raise threshold for Chicago speed camera tickets stalls, as Mayor Lori Lightfoot and allies push off final vote for now

Facing a likely defeat in her bid to stop the City Council from raising the threshold for issuing speed camera tickets in Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her allies delayed a final vote on the proposal for now.

A day after the Finance Committee voted 16 to 15 to raise threshold for speed camera tickets from 6 mph over the limit to 10 mph over the limit, the City Council had been expected to cast a final vote on Wednesday.
