Ald. Tunney Announces Driver Survival Seminar In 44th Ward
Chicago’s 44th ward is one of the most heavily ticketed wards in the city.
Being located in the heavily congested Lakeview neighborhood and having Wrigley Field within the ward, it’s no wonder why so many tickets are issued there.
Owning a car in Chicago, and especially the 44th ward, can really be a challenge with traffic, parking, red light cameras, parking tickets and sometimes, unfortunately the Denver boot.
But now 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney is helping drivers deal with these stressful situations when he presents the Chicago Driver Survival Seminar on Tuesday, January 25th.
This FREE event will be held at the brand new 23rd District police station located at 850 W. Addison Street (near Halsted).
The Chicago Driver Survival Seminar is a two and a half hour motorist education boot camp to arm Chicago drivers with the basic tools of avoiding and fighting parking tickets, understanding and avoiding red light camera tickets, dealing with speeding and other traffic tickets, keeping the Denver boot off your car and keeping drivers up to speed on recent changes to driving laws.
The seminar was created by Mike Brockway (aka The Parking Ticket Geek) the publisher of The Expired Meter.com (a local website providing news and advice on driving and parking), to help local drivers get a better understanding of these issues..
While the Parking Ticket Geek will discuss how to deal with parking tickets, the National Motorist Association’s Barnet Fagel will speak to drivers about red light cameras and speeding tickets
“It’s a way for the ordinary citizen to take steps to protect them self,” said Fagel. “The seminar will give drivers better insight into how to navigate Chicago’s challenging streets.”
Parking is available in the parking garage immediately west of the police station and street parking is available as well.
Register In Advance, Limited Seating Available
Because seating is limited, drivers are encourages to register for the event to reserve their seat.
Seating will be given on a first come, first serve basis, so it is recommended that interested motorists respond quickly.
