Protesters rallied Sunday on Chicago's North Side against red-light cameras that have resulted in more tickets for motorists.The protesters waved signed and handed out flyers to drivers. They are urging passage of a Senate bill that bans automatic ticketing in Illinois.

The demonstrators claim officials installed the cameras not for safety, but to raise revenue, and they say, in 2008, Chicago took in $45 million in fines from camera-generated tickets.

Sunday's protest in Chicago was one of several held across the country.
