CHICAGO — The Department of Transportation will begin installing speed cameras near four parks next week, and drivers will get a 30-day grace period before the speeding tickets begin showing up in the mail, city officials announced Friday.

The four locations — Garfield Park, Gompers Park, Washington Park and Marquette Park — will have speed cameras installed by the end of August, and CDOT announced an additional eight locations where drivers can expect cameras by the end of September.
