Chicago's new speed cameras clock 205K citations

    CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago's new speed cameras have clocked almost 205,000 violations in just over a month.

    An analysis by WBEZ (http://bit.ly/1cDxrR1 ) shows the cameras in nine safety zones logged the speeding violations between Aug. 26 and Oct. 3.

    The cameras are only issuing warnings to drivers, but fines will be levied starting later this month. If the violations had been tickets, they could have generated nearly $13.9 million for the city in just 39 days.

    That's on pace to be well above the $40 million to $60 million in extra revenue forecast by Mayor Rahm Emanuel for next year.

    But the larger-than-expected number of citations is prompting criticism from some who say the cameras are more about making money for the city than protecting children and pedestrians.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have aways disliked the idea because of thee expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried
    about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I cann transfer all my wordpress
    content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
