Horrors! Tribune Reports On Cars Parked On Shoulder Of Road
In a major expose’, the Chicago Tribune reports on some drivers who pull over on the side of I-190 waiting to pickup friends or family landing at O’Hare Airport.
It seems, according to the story, it’s a common occurrence and possibly dangerous for a line of cars to build up there in violation of the signs prohibiting such heinous behavior and the risk of a $120 fine.
However, enforcement is lax. Perhaps because there is confusion over which police agency–the Chicago Police Department or Illinois State Police–actually has jurisdiction at that specific location.
The story correctly reports there is the nearby cell phone parking lot off of Manheim Road and adjacent to O’Hare parking lot F, where drivers can park safely and legally for free while waiting to pickup up at the airport.
It’s probably safe to say, a massive enforcement crackdown being pushed by the Tribune Editorial Board, is imminent and will clear out these evil lawbreakers and put a stop to this unbelievably hazardous and terrible situation in short order.
Here’s the Tribune’s full story, “I-190 shoulder a favorite way station for motorists awaiting O’Hare arrivals.”
