A few Lake County Passage links to get you started

To live in Lake County is to be stuck in traffic” – Congressman Mark Kirk in 2004, announcing Lake County Passage, our very own traffic management system. Too many people, two-lane roads, and now there’s too much traffic.

AM 1620 is Lake County’s all-traffic radio station. A recording recites a loop of local traffic advisories. It’s super-local and useful if you’re in the reception area. If only the narrator’s voice was less, ahem, annoying.

Big Brother is Watching – the recent and upcoming expansion of Lake County Passage traffic monitoring system to include more cameras.

“We’ll be working on this for years until we get the whole county covered” – Lake County Transportation Director Martin Buehler

There is a creepiness to that statement. Our tax dollars at work?
