    Life and death in Back of the Yards: 'We were born into it'
    Ismael Lopez lived and died in a small patch of Back of the Yards thick with homicide memorials and gang graffiti. That he was killed there was not surprising. In the past 3 1/2 years, more than 150 people have been shot in this area measuring a mile by a mile and a half, according to data compiled by the Tribune.

California/Montrose Crosswalk

Any suggestions for addressing a dangerous intersection? I cross Montrose along California daily to/from the train, and northbound vehicles turning onto Montrose don't seem to yield for pedestrians. I've had close encounters with school buses, numerous 10+ year old minivans, and most recently had to run to avoid a car turning into the crosswalk as I pushed my two year old in a stroller. From my unscientific experience, I'd say 20% of vehicles fail to yield.

Letter to the alderman is already out, vigilantism is next. If I capture a video/license plate of someone failing to yield, will the police do anything about it? Thanks in advance for any other suggestions

  • I love when I stop for pedestrians at a crosswalk and the car behind me starts honking, which happens quite often. I always wonder what they think I should do, run over them?

  • I'm not here to defend cars that put pedestrians in danger, but common sense goes both ways. If cars are waiting 3-4 deep to turn right at an intersection and people just keep starting to cross, even when it's blinking red, that's just rude and what makes those of us driving try to get through in any gap we can find. Just because we yield to you, doesn't mean you're the only person trying to get where you're going.

    I'd be careful with Handy. We were using them for a once a month cleaning until they charged our card 4 times for a cleaning. We called, they reversed all but one charge and then no one showed! We ended up disputing the remaining charge through the bank - Handy kept saying they'd refund it but they didn't. Handy also gave us a credit for our next cleaning, but we're done with them. It's not worth it.
    Plus we had two different people clean, we asked both to spend the most time in the kitchen and bathrooms - neither of them cleaned the kitchen sink. I think that's super odd...
