Chicago experiences roughly 3,000 crashes annually between motor vehicles and pedestrians, about 800 of which involve children.
The Children’s Safety Zone Program protects children and other pedestrians by reminding motorists to slow down and obey speed laws — especially in school and park zones. The safety zones are designated as within 1/8th of a mile from Chicago parks or schools.
The program uses automated safety cameras to identify and ticket motorists who are breaking the law by exceeding the speed limits. The registered owner of the speeding vehicle will be issued the speeding ticket.
