Do you believe this?
December 1, 2012
Chicago Police had 301 vehicles towed off Chicago streets early this morning, as they enforced the seasonal parking ban between 3:00-7:00AM that went into effect at midnight.
I'll tell you. If they want to do stupid #%&@*$&@ like that, they deserve a revolution in Chicago.
If you saw the Chicago Tribune earlier, six people were killed overnight. And the cops think it's important to enforce the parking ban.
Thanks, (stupid) Mayor Emanuel and Supt. McCarthy. That's great "service" to the City residents. I wonder how many cars were towed in the upscale neighbors versus in the war zone. And how many cars will not be claimed by their owners, because they are unemployed or poor and feeding babies instead of paying tow bills. The tow bill was probably $150; storage will be $40.00/day; and how much for the stupid ticket?
The parking ban is designed to keep streets clear when it snows, but it is enforced from December 1 until April 1, snow or no.
According to the online Tribune article, the City thinks it is giving adequate notice of the parking ban through "... placing leaflets on the cars along the routes, posting reminders on social media cites [sic] and web and at ward offices.
You did see all the snow last night, didn't you? Since there wasn't any snow, why didn't the City just hang warning notices on those cars?
That's just one more reason to hate Chicago, the mayor, the police chief and the ward bosses and city council people!
