This Breaking News Article Is About Chicago Speed Camera Will Ticket Motorists Going Over 6 MPH Starting 2021
It is no secret that Chicago is facing huge budget deficits.
Chicago is the highest taxed city in the nation. However, even with the highest taxes in just about everything including property taxes, the city is still broke and cannot pay its bills. While other Republican-led major cities are recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, Chicago is yet to find other ways of increasing revenues to be able to pay its bills.
First-term Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is proving herself to be incompetent in leading such a large-sized city like Chicago. Chicago is under crisis more so today than ever before. Chicagoans are fed up with the high crime rate, the high murder rate, the never-ending tax increases, and a liberal mayor who was joining the protesters and rioters during the summer and fall of 2020. To show their dissatisfaction, tens of thousands of Chicagoans are fleeing the city to the suburbs and/or other low taxed states. Lightfoot who was also open-minded in defunding the Chicago Police Department is now stooping to an all-time new low. Effective January 1st, 2021, Chicago Speed Camera will be ticketing motorists going over 6 miles per hour throughout the city.
In this breaking news article, we will discuss and cover how effective January 1st, 2021 Chicago Speed Camera will ticket motorists going over 6 MPH.
Revenues From Chicago Speed Camera Expected To Rake In Millions To Cover $1.2 Billion Budget Deficit
Starting New Year 2021, Chicago will start issuing traffic tickets for motorists who are caught speeding six to nine miles per hour within city limits through the automated speed cameras.
This new law by Mayor Lori Lightfoot was created to increase revenue to cover part of the city’s budget shortfall. It was not created because of safety issues of Chicagoans. Lori Lightfoot is expecting millions of dollars in revenue this year with citing motorists who speed six miles over the posted speed limit through the automatic speed cameras. The tickets is supposed to cost violators $35 dollars.
Chicago has over $1.2 billion dollars in its budget deficit.
The city’s broken pension system is sucking taxpayers dry with no cap on tax increases.
Chicago has the highest taxes in the nation out of any major metropolitan city. However, the city is always short despite having the nation’s highest taxes.
Why is other lower-taxed Republican-led major cities thriving and raking in billions in revenues and high-taxed Chicago on the verge of bankruptcy? Answer is simple. Incompetent leadership.
Incompetence And High Taxes Destroying Chicago
Mayor Lightfoot shadowing Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s incompetence in increasing taxes during a global pandemic is creating a major exodus of taxpayers and businesses to flee Illinois to other low taxed states.
Both JB Pritzker and Lori Lightfoot are politicizing the coronavirus pandemic. First-time freshman political newcomer JB Pritzker has high political goals. JB Pritzker saw an opportunity to politicize the COVID-19 pandemic to brand his name on a national level. JB Pritzker wanted to brand himself as America’s health czar.
America’s Health Czar from an overly overweight obese 56-year-old governor who may drop dead any day from a heart attack due to his obesity? Lori Lightfoot seems to consider Pritzker as her mentor.
Lori Lightfoot is behind on all of JB Pritzker’s political decisions including going along with Pritzker’s second executive stay at home order lockdown.
The second executive stay at home order is destroying Illinois small businesses where over a third of businesses will be closed permanently.
Lightfoot is planning on another property tax increase to cover part of the $1.2 billion budget deficit. Incompetent leadership and financial irresponsibility is crushing the city of Chicago.
Mayor Lightfoot Counting On Federal Bailout Backfires
Chicago Speed Camera to ticket motorists was initially sold to the city for public safety in having motorists drive the speed limit.
However, Mayor Lori Lightfoot saw a way to capitalize on automatic speed cameras as a means to raise revenues to cover part of the city’s $1.2 billion dollar budget deficit. Lightfoot is grabbing for straws to cover the huge budget deficit. Part of the reason why Chicago is facing the largest budget deficit in its history is because of the executive stay at home order during the coronavirus pandemic.
Lightfoot followed JB Pritzker’s lead in having the city be one of the first major cities to shut down when the pandemic hit Illinois and one of the last cities to reopen. However, the second round of stay at home order has been in effect as of November 1st, 2020. Not only has the lockdown hurt businesses but also has dropped tax dollars since businesses were shut down. Both Pritzker and Lightfoot have been banking on a federal coronavirus bailout to pay for the deficit. However, their counting on a federal bailout has backfired due to opposition from well-run states. Why should lower-taxed cities and financially responsible states pay for mismanaged cities and states. Now with the possibility of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris winning the 2020 Presidential Election, Lightfoot is really banking on a federal bailout. However, there is a tremendous amount of evidence Joe Biden and Democrats have cheated and committed election fraud in the November 3rd elections.
If election fraud did occur, Lightfoot and Pritzker are going to get another round of disappointment. In the meantime, tens of thousands of families and small business owners are fleeing Chicago in droves.
