The city of Chicago is letting residents know about automated speed cameras that will go up later this year around schools, parks and other places where children congregate.

The Chicago Department of Transportation has started a campaign to educate residents about the cameras. Affected areas are within 1/8th of a mile from parks or schools. There will be 1,500 "Children's Safety Zones" across the city and about 300 will have speed cameras. City laws will set speed limits at between 20 and 30 mph depending on the time of day.

Only warnings will be issued for the first 30 days the cameras are up. First-time offenders will receive a warning, after that fines range from $35 to $100.
