Cell phone law enforcement nets millions for Chicago
Chicago is making a lot of money off of cell phone users behind the wheel of their vehicles. In 2010, Chicago reportedly made $2.2 million off of the people ticketed for using their cell phones without a hands-free device while driving.
This is an increase of an amazing 73% in the data from 2006 when the law first took effect. In raw data, those ticketed by the Chicago police totaled 23,292 drivers according to the Chicago Tribune newspaper via The Examiner.
