Motorcycles noise on the Ohio feeder

Now that the weather is warming the motorcycles have reappeared on the Ohio feeder. There was a discussion of this noise annoyance on the previous incarnation of EveryBlock. This noisy menace is worse very late at night when the motorcycles essentially use the feeder as a raceway. Is there still interest in trying to get something done about this? If so, does anyone have suggestions about how to go about it (contact the appropriate alderpeople, call the police, etc)? I would gladly join any effort to address this problem.

  • I remember the old alderman for ward 42, Natarus, enacted a sting program to enforce noise laws for this problem some years ago. It was highly effective and we had some nice peace living directly on LaSalle for a few years. Then Brennan O'Reilley (sp?) took over 42 and it all fell apart. Contact the O'reilley's office and file a complaint and ask for enforcement, If enough of us do that, ti might make a difference.

  • The alderman is Brendan Reilly. An online form for complaints is at: http://www.ward42chicago.com/contact_us_form.html. Phone is 312.642.4242.
