Traffic light behavior

Hi Chicago drivers,

Does anyone know why (in the past 6 mos or so) drivers are going through backed up yellow and green lights, resulting in their car blocking the intersection of busy downtown streets? When this happens, it blocks lines of traffic for a mile up the street, resulting in a total blockage and even more bad driving. Trying to understand why this is happening, if there are any laws against it in IL, and how to maybe reduce the occurrences of it.

    "that's why I hate driving in the loop" shhhhhhh

  • In the past, we used to have traffic cops at certain intersections that were really bad. No more. I notice this on certain streets, and it's like these people are doing it on purpose. I don't drive but take the bus. I don't know how many times it would take 30 minutes to get through 1 light because of this.

Loud Booms Downtown

Hi - I live in the West Loop, and early this morning (4 am?) I heard a series of loud booms that reverberated off the buildings. Nothing shook, no flashes of light. Just maybe 5 booms, a pause, and then a final one. And honestly, it didn't sound like any there was any sort of impact prior. Did anyone else hear them? Any guesses as to what they were?

  • I heard them too, but I have no idea what the cause was or where exactly it happened. At first I thought they were gunshots, but I'm not so sure anymore. I live in the west loop, also.

  • I heard it to woke me up and it was really loud. I am not sure what it was.

  • It was Santa coming in hot! (too much eggnog over the Atlantic). Merry Christmas to all!

I found your fitbit!

I found a fitbit this morning near Jefferson and Monroe. The display shows me the name, so if you lost one in the area and it matches, Id love to return it to you!

    Also, I just checked on line. If you communicated with...

    Also, I just checked on line. If you communicated with Fitbit, if they will send you a prepaid envelope to send in the Fitbit and they will reunite it with the owner. I know that it worked when my son lost his keys with a Divvy Key on it. Maybe others have experience with Fitbit.

    Anyway, this is really nice of you and this forum is a great resource.

Happy Hour Spots

Looking for a good happy hour spot to hopefully mingle with some new people. Preferably a place where a decent amount of people frequent within the 26-36 age range. Would love suggestions on some places to go to. Thanks in advance!

New coffee shop in Fulton Market

Hi ..read this story in Chicago Business regarding a mom and pop shop that builds bikes and also has a coffee shop. States that they will open 3 more coffee shops - 1 in fulton Market. Anyone know where it may be located? I googled but came up empty.

Always like independant coffee shops vs Starbucks! Which brings me to say that one of my favorites is Jupiter Outpost also on Fulton:

If you have never been there, you should go. Cute place!
