Mayor’s challenger calls for removing traffic cameras

Over the weekend Chicago mayoral candidate Jesus Garcia made the city’s traffic cameras a campaign issue. The Cook county commissioner called on the mayor to reevalute the use of red light cameras. A story over the weekend by the Chicago Tribune highlighted glaring problems with the cameras. Including city hall’s stance that the cameras at intersections throughout the city would reduce crashes. The detailed report questions the effectiveness and expense of the controversial cameras. WBEZ’s Yolanda Perdomo joins us with how this could be another election issue pitting the candidates against each other.
