ALERT!: Move Your Cars, Ravenswood Run Sunday
Sunday is the annual Ravenswood Run, up on Chicago’s Northside.
Three years ago, race promoters did a very poor job of getting the word out and/or not posting enough signs along portions of the race route and several hundred cars were erroneously towed.
Since then, race promoters havedone a great better job and this year, it looks like they’re going out of their way to make sure things run smoothly again.
They’ve got bright yellow posters on trees all along the as well as white lawn signs on every corner and they’ve also been sticking fliers on the windshields of cars to warn drivers parked along the race course.
Do yourself a favor, check the signs, read any fliers that may have been slipped into your foyer or mail slot and whatever you do, check out the race course map.
Whatever you do, if you normally park along the Ravenswood Run race course, move your car to a nearby street where you can legally park.
Otherwise, be prepared to spend a good chunk of Sunday at the auto pound and shelling out $160.
Parking restrictions are from 5 AM to 11 AM.
It might make sense to move your vehicle to a safe parking spot the afternoon or evening before. Because if you’re planning a night that involves adult beverages Saturday night, you may not wake before 5 AM to move your car in time.
