Schiller Park, Illinois Speed Traps
The traffic cameras at this busy intersection have “hair triggers” and often record turns that are completely legal (right turns on red, or left turns even when you entered the intersection on a full green light). As a “gateway” to the O’Hare Airport area, Schiller Park makes lots of money from traffic traps.
