Speed Limit Cameras on Foster

How can we volunteer to have Foster Avenue, between Elston and Kimball, set as the first area to test the speed-limit cameras?

This section of Foster is clearly posted as a 30 MPH zone, yet because of the large area of parks and little parking there is a very large amount of speeding down this street. It's a real threat to pedestrians, senior citizens, children, bicyclists, and other using the public streets.

This would be a good place to test the system. Speed limit signs are clearly posted along the route and new signs wouldn't even be needed.

    Ok so we all know about the graft for the well connected and the claims that this all has been "For the children" and the ridiculous light timings that could not be explained Well the facts are in and the cameras do not improve safety. They are all about the money. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/watchdog/redlight/ct-red-light-camera-safety-met-20141219-story.html#page=1 FIVE HUNDRED MILLION in fines! How many lives has that affected?

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

    The Tribune and Redlight stories are misleading.

    They note that the number of T-Bone accidents have been reduced (which is good) but then go on to complain that the number of rear-end accidents have increased.

    Rear-end accidents occur because of drivers driving to fast and following to closely, not because of the Red-Light cameras.

    Slow down, keep your distance, and drive safely. Quit looking for someone else to blame.

39th Ward Alderman Debate?

Finally there's competition for the job. Anyone know if there's a debate in the works?

  • Thanks Bob, but occasionally my requests for city services somehow get lost and there is no record when I search the 311 tracker, and while you can request garbage cans online, status is not available for that service. If you go to the tracker site, there are only 13 services...

    Thanks Bob, but occasionally my requests for city services somehow get lost and there is no record when I search the 311 tracker, and while you can request garbage cans online, status is not available for that service. If you go to the tracker site, there are only 13 services that are tracked through this method. When I called about the taxis I was looking for information as to when/if they are allowed to park, etc. The cab complaint form is for cab service complaints and is forwarded to the Dept of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection since they monitor the cabs, not sent to the police for ticketing. I thought the alderman's office could help me with that issue since I am not someone who jumps at the thought of making random city requests that may not be valid.

    Also, for the record, when someone does a good job I am one of the first to give praise. Five calls in 20 years. I am not a complainer.

    So now, those who have had enough of me can mute me.

  • Robert Murphy, thank you for the offer to discuss your vision, it is appreciated.

Candidates for 39th Ward Alderman

I've been studying the 39th Ward candidates for alderman, and while I am still undecided since anything can happen between now and the election, I have been impressed by Robert Murphy. He seems to have a handle on the issues of the Ward and appears very passionate. I am still open to hearing more from Joe Laiacona and Mary Hunter.

If you're interested in knowing - Murphy, Laiacona's and Hunter all have Facebook pages, and Murphy and Laiacona have twitter...

If you're interested in knowing - Murphy, Laiacona's and Hunter all have Facebook pages, and Murphy and Laiacona have twitter too. I tried to find a FB page or twitter for Alderman Laurino but I don't think she has either.

If anyone has any thoughts on any of the candidates, I would like to hear any views. You can also private message me if you like.

  • Susan, OId Irving Anna commented in another thread:

    http://chicago.everyblock.com/politics/dec16-39th-ward-alderman-debate-6565538/

    "Several community associations are discussing co-sponsoring a debate. Effort is being spearheaded by the Hollywood Park--North Park group. Location would be Northside College Prep auditorium. No firm details yet."

    I look forward to attending,

    From reading Kathleen's comment, it confirms that some areas of the 39th Ward receives better treatment than other sections. My area seems to be one of the forgotten areas.

Mayfair Presbyterian church bells

Does anyone in the area know the story with these constant Christmas carols? I do usually enjoy them, but they've been chiming strong for 3 hours straight! I think someone fell asleep in the belfry.

  • Lol just checking to see if anyone else was posting about this...

    I like the bells before midnight. Hope they don't get their hands slapped too bad for this one.

  • Playing them this loud all night...? Christmas spirit? People want to sleep
