Chicago traffic cameras set to track citizens

Fears for privacy with new multi-directional cameras set to catch red-light runners, but also perform surveillance.

    Traffic cameras have long been an annoyance to drivers who run red lights, a safety measure for pedestrians, and a source of revenue for governments.
     
    The US city of Chicago is now taking the technology one step further, installing new radar-based traffic cameras that can see in all directions. 

    But, the new network of hi-tech cameras is making some people uneasy.
