Two New Chicago Speed Cameras To Start Issuing Tickets Wednesday

(CBS) -- The warnings are over. Two new city speed cameras will now be issuing tickets.

The cameras are on the Southwest Side near Mulberry Park, 3200 S. Archer, and on the Northwest Side near Keystone Park, 1754 N. Pulaski, 4053 W. North Ave, and 4042 W. North Ave.

They were installed last month, but were only issuing warnings, until now.

Many drivers are not welcoming the change.

"I think it's a scam," said Nicholas Pagliucha on the Archer speed camera. "I've lived in this neighborhood since I was 17-years-old and it's all the way on the other side of the buildings. I got a warning ticket there one time and I didn't realize the park was all the way over there."

The cameras will be on and issuing tickets to speeders from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. 7 days a week.
