This report tackles three questions regarding Chicago's automated speed and red-light enforcement program. First, what are social and spatial distributional effects of red-light and speed camera tickets for city households? Second, what are the economic effects of camera ticket fines and fees, and are effects equitably distributed across Chicago neighborhoods? Third, how effective are Chicago's speed cameras for improving road safety?
