Illinois State Police to install license plate-reading cameras on Chicago area expressways as violence persists

Two years ago, a 55-year-old woman named Tamara Clayton was shot and killed while driving on Interstate 57 near Cicero Avenue while on her way to work. In the wake of Clayton’s death, Gov. J.B. Pritzker, state representatives, including Sen. Jacqueline Collins, and gun violence activist Andrew Holmes argued for newer cameras to help reduce crime. That July, the Tamara Clayton Expressway Act was signed to instruct state police to install the updated cameras on highways that could help police identify shooters.
