Chicago Traffic Department officials said on Tuesday they will not deploy a new traffic management strategy that would include using “faster, more aggressive” enforcement tactics against drivers who are speeding, causing congestion or otherwise disrupting traffic.
Chicago traffic was clogged Monday and Tuesday as drivers were stuck for hours in the Loop. “
The goal of this strategy is to reduce congestion while simultaneously reducing speeding, slowing, and other conditions that can create a significant safety and safety risk,” the memo says.

During the morning commute, about 25,000 vehicles passed through the intersection, causing significant congestion on the main street and a short stretch of U.S. Highway 93 near the Loop’s intersection with I-294, officials said.
