Venting

Speaking of parking issues in Rogers Park... an old gentleman across the street on North Shore has a designated handicap spot. When he returns from wherever, he parks in his spot. Then, as soon as an adjacent spot opens up he removes his placard from the window and moves his car there, taking up an extra space.

I fume every time I see this. What’s his deal? Does he just like an unobstructed view of the street? And, (yes, I know you can’t always tell), he doesn’t seem to have a disability.

It just apppears selfish and un-neighborly.

  • that's nice of you to say Omar..IDK which comment you are talking about but nonetheless it is quite mean

  • as usual the last few posts end up with some immature comments,

Parking needed

I know I am not the only one who has noticed the parking situation in Rogers park, but it seems to have become worse. Many of the cars I see parked have at least 3 feet in front of them and 3 feet behind them resulting in even less parking. We need to put pressure on Alderman Joe Moore to do something! Either initiate permit parking or build a couple of parking garages, or even draw lines in the road...

Either initiate permit parking or build a couple of parking garages, or even draw lines in the road to make sure people aren't greedily taking up multiples spots. I personally am affected by this because some nights I work until 12:30 am then have to be back at 10 am the next day.. I drive around some nights for 1-2 hours looking for parking and its never close by to where I live. I know others feel the same way.
Please please lets do something about this! With winter around the corner its only going to get much worse.

    Not looking for conflict - or to spin this 'parking; thread in yet another direction, but I think over time, many of us may have knowingly or inadvertently revealed bits and pieces of information that could ultimately lead to being identified (I inadvertently discovered who at last two people on EB are in the 'real world)' - so yes, I wouldn't characterize it as 'drama' to not publicly identify where someone lives if they haven't chosen to do so themselves.

    I'm don't know what any of Wazzup's prior comments have to do with someone else identifying where he lives. Even if someone does manage to lead a trail to their own door, that shouldn't suggest that it's good practice for someone else to do it, even if it's not being done maliciously.

    Did Heather find parking??

    Judge rules that all red light and speed camera tickets are 'void'
    If you've been pinged with a red-light or speed camera ticket since 2003, you could soon be owed a refund. According to the Chicago Sun-Times , a ruling out of the Cook County Circuit Court on Friday found that Chicago denied due process to motorists who were ticketed by the automated cameras, and that those tickets are now void.

    People slam on their brakes because they don't understand the technology well enough. It's a well documented phenomenon you can't be that dense can you?

    People also speed to get through the light before it changes, so they don't get a ticket. Very dangerous!
