Forbidden Chicago presents: The City's Candid Cameras

We've got a bunch, and now Mayor Daley wants more. They are security cameras, and some are hidden, some have created blue-light districts, and others catch red-light violators. U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff was in Chicago recently, and he liked what he saw as far as the city taking away people's privacy. Now, the Daley Show is proud to present a guide to these cameras, all 2,000 of them (and counting).

PERFECT, andy.

i just noticed that they installed that "traffic cop replacement" at Kedzie & Fullerton, but honestly, i don't think it will stop anyone from running red lights in my neighborhood, or any other, unfortunately.
