Stolen Spare Tire

Overnight, my spare tire was taken out of the protected locked case on the back of my RAV4 at North Avenue and Honore. Please help me understand...

  • Jon Banks supervisor banks

    I've had my spare stolen 3 times. Be sure to call the police. So many people don't call the police to report these types of crimes (although most insurance companies will require a police report) because they think the police won't be able to help. The reality is the more reports the police receive in an area the more police will be dispatched to the area. Granted the increased police presence won't remain but its better than nothing.

  • Kim,
    My spare was stolen too a couple years ago. It's mounted under the back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Looks like they cut the cable. I replaced it with a new tire and a used rim which I now keep inside the rear luggage area.
    I'm not even sure...

    Kim,

    I'm not even sure where I was parked when it was stolen. So, it may have happened in Lakeview or some other neighborhood on the northside.
    I filed a police report. I just paid out of pocket because my insurance deductible is higher.
    JON BANKS: What kind of car do you have? Three times in a row? Did you take any extra measures to prevent the second and third thefts?

Dangerous Intersection Suggestions

The Tribune reports that our North - Damen - Milwaukee intersection is the most dangerous in the city. Three thoughts:
1. Every third time I drive south on Milwaukee to the intersection, someone is making an illegal left turn. I suggest that the city add a lit sign "No Left Turn" as the unlit sign is easy to miss. Enforcing it with a police car fo ticket errant drivers for a few weeks will also help.

The Tribune reports that our North - Damen - Milwaukee intersection is the most dangerous in the city. Three thoughts:
1. Every third time I drive south on Milwaukee to the intersection, someone is making an illegal left turn. I suggest that the city add a lit sign "No Left Turn" as the unlit sign is easy to miss. Enforcing it with a police car fo ticket errant drivers for a few weeks will also help.
2. Every day I see foolish people, going back from the EL station, crossing kity-corner from the SW corner to the NE corner of North and Damen rather than crossing North Ave. going north and then east across Milwaukee. The city has paved this safer crossing route with distinctive pavings between the cross-walk lines and fenced in part of the SW corner. Clearly, this is insufficient. I suggest lettering the street facing each corner with lettering saying something like "Do NOT Cross Here" and a skull and crossbones to point out how dangerous and stupid that route is.
3. Milwaukee is now a major bicycle route. I can understand bicycles can safely go through stop signs on side streets. They cannot safely weave around cars and go through red lights at the North - Damen - Milwaukee intersection and yet they do. I suggest adding bicycle red and green lights (see the intersection of Milwaukee and Elston for examples) at our intersection. If bikers violate them, give them tickets. They may howl; but, it may save a few lives.

I am looking to start a regular pickup basketball game somewhere in the vicinity of Bucktown/Wicker Park/Logan Square/UK Village (basically somewhere in a near west neighborhood).

Car horn in Wicker/West Town

Curious to know if anyone heard that car horn going off for about 10 mins. It wasn't an alarm, just a constant blaring on and off. Happened around midnight, sounds like near Wood and Augusta.
