It can't be cash grab 'cuz it loses money, but don't worry there's a LONG TERM plan to make it pay....

"In fact, the report suggests more speeding infractions equate to even greater costs for the City due to the price of processing the tickets. The infractions caught on ASE systems have cost a total of around $1.7 million.

There is, however, a long-term plan that could at least make the program revenue-neutral by 2023.

Tony Ragucci resigned his position as mayor of Oakbrook Terrace as news of the Federal Bureau Investigation's probe into Safespeed became public. The feds reportedly seized $60,000 in cash from Ragucci's home, and salesman Patrick Doherty last month said he wanted to reconsider his not guilty plea to the charge that he bribed mayors to win lucrative payoffs from Safespeed.”
