    Chicago Drivers Are Getting A Bit More Leeway On Running Red Lights
    Today looks like it was a win for both advocates of safe streets and opponents of nickel-and-dimed revenue generation. The city announced that it would raise the grace period for cars passing through a red light-to the joy of Chicago drivers-while keeping that grace period at a safe and reasonable length-to the joy of Chicago pedestrians who enjoy remaining in one piece while crossing an intersection.

  • I never said it wasn't within the law. I'll keep beeping at you when there is no cross-traffic and you're stopped at the light admiring the blue sky rather than actually driving.

  • Chris, I agree, that person refusing to turn on red can be seriously maddening. On the other hand, you can actually receive a citation for harassing another motorist if a police officer was of the mind to do so. Admittedly, I've never known of anyone receiving such a citation for this but it can happen!

When you see someome being rough woth dogs...

Gah i am still upset ... This is the second time I see this younger woman walk 2 midsize dogs. The dogs get excited when they see other dogs across the street, in this case mine. She then yells and janks at their leash to get them to stop. This morning same thing. When the dogs finally calm down they get zero praise or encouragement... So how are they to know?

Gah i am still upset ... This is the second time I see this younger woman walk 2 midsize dogs. The dogs get excited when they see other dogs across the street, in this case mine. She then yells and janks at their leash to get them to stop. This morning same thing. When the dogs finally calm down they get zero praise or encouragement... So how are they to know? She is trying to teach them to sit before crossing the street (great) except same method. She literally told her dogs 10+ times to sit, no reaction so then she just janks the chain again. I have finally had it and yelled at her to please get a dog trainer.

I am sure she means well but needs some help with better training methods

I feel bad for the dogs

And I am annoyed that I butted in... Although I would probably be more upset if I hadn't....

What are your thoughts neighbors???

  • Mind your business when you witness abuse? Why?

    Mind your business when you witness abuse? Why?

    I respect people who will speak up. It's kind of like that recent viral video with two teenagers fighting and all their friends circling them laughing, recording it with their cell phones. One guy walks down the street and talks sense into them and forced them to shake hands. He said (paraphrasing), "Look at all these people. They're your friends? They're pointing and laughing at you. You're a joke to them. You're mad and they're laughing."

    If he hadn't interjected, who knows if one of the kids would have been seriously hurt fighting in the street. He interjected, the kids shook hands, and they walked away. Maybe they'll fight again the next time they run into each other. Or maybe they'll take his words to heart.

    But the one thing the innocent bystander didn't do was mind his business and keep walking. He tried to help and to educate.

    Study: Red light cameras make Chicago streets safer; some may be relocated
    Chicago's red light cameras help make driving safer in Chicago, according to a study released Monday by the Northwestern University Transportation Center. The report found "significant safety benefits" and recommended the continuation of the program. The study recommended that the city extend the time allowed before issuing a ticket once the light turns red.

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    Don't speed, don't run red lights and you won't get a ticket and it won't cost you anything. The only people who complain are those that get tickets, and only those who break the law get tickets.

    Slow down, save lives.

New School In Dunning OK'd By CPS Board; Ebinger, Prussing To Get Annexes

Also on Wednesday, the board passed a resolution calling for the commission to start designing annexes for Prussing Elementary School, 4650 N. Menard Ave., and Ebinger Elementary School, 7350 W. Pratt Ave., both announced earlier this year.

This article has 5 other Chicago locations (Show)

The school is slated to open at the intersection of Irving Park Road and Oak Park Avenue in time for the 2019-20 school year.

Taft principal Mark Grishaber has lobbied hard in support of the alderman's proposal for a "Taft South," arguing that it could be the only way to relieve the school's overcrowding without stripping the resources that have helped Taft, 6530 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., climb to level 1 status.

At the same time, students and teachers at Steinmetz College Prep High School, 3030 N. Mobile Ave., have questioned why the $75 million school is being built at all, when the neighboring Steinmetz is hemorrhaging enrollment and enduring bone-deep budget cuts.

Also on Wednesday, the board passed a resolution calling for the commission to start designing annexes for Prussing Elementary School, 4650 N. Menard Ave., and Ebinger Elementary School, 7350 W. Pratt Ave., both announced earlier this year.

Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41st) personally thanked the board for its vote to build on Ebinger Wednesday, but he vowed to "keep the quest going" to get a similar addition for Dirksen Elementary School, 8601 W. Foster Ave., now operating around 160 percent capacity.

    New School In Dunning OK'd By CPS Board; Ebinger, Prussing To Get Annexes
    DOWNTOWN - The Chicago Public Schools Board of Education voted Wednesday to kick-start the design process for a "middle school project" in the Read-Dunning area, whose enrollment and attendance boundaries have yet to be decided. The city's Public Building Commission unveiled its intention to build the school, which would hold about 1,300 students, at a Jan.

  • This project will be partially funded through the Reed-Dunning TIF. The remainder, yes, they intend to borrow.

    https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dcd/supp_info/tif/read_dunning_tif.html

    Now the city is under a 9/11/2017 deadline to transfer it to CPS through a 99 year lease. See page 2: https://www.cpsboe.org/content/actions/2014_02/14-0226-OP1.pdf

    It has become a major boondoggle since the proposed transfer of the North end of this portion of the property to the Chicago Park District for an athletic field failed two years ago.

    That fast approaching deadline has created constantly changing plans driven by personal agendas, including the involvement of Taft High School's principal.

    Undesirable outcomes result from the "need to do something" when facing a deadline.

  • More money spent, more congestion, and more segregation through selectivity. Just what Chicago does not need.

    This project offers limited hope to neighbors because anyone can apply to live there.

    In the case of the lady featured in this article, the really unfortunate part is that she might be forced out of her house after 19 years. A better option would be for the city (state?) to offer assistance in cases like this one, and to use their clout to force the bank back to the negotiating table so that this lady (and others in a similar situation) are not forced out of their homes. In the long run this would be the best outcome for everyone.
