It’s a busy week for the Chicago Driver Survivor Seminar.
The week kicked off with a DSS on Tuesday in the 46th ward with aldermanic candidate James Cappleman.
Then, last night we had a great night at the Devon Bank at Western Ave. and Devon. Ahmed Khan, an impressive young candidate running for alderman in the 50th ward, brought out about 40 people on a bitterly cold night to get lessons on keeping Chicago parking tickets and red light camera tickets at bay.
Tonight, the DSS crew heads into the 45th ward, for a seminar hosted by aldermanic candidate Michael Fitzpatrick Ward at the Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 N. Knox starting at 6:30 PM.
Parking is FREE!
Finally, the Chicago Driver Survivor Seminar winds up the week in Lincoln Park on Saturday morning starting at 1 PM.
43rd ward candidate Chuck Eastwood is hosting a seminar at their campaign headquarters at 2300 N. Clark (corner of Belden & Clark).
The Chicago Driver Survival Seminar is a FREE, 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.
Seating is limited at all events so registration is advised.

Free Educational Event Is First Of Its Kind In Chicago
This free class will teach Chicago drivers the basics of: avoiding and contesting parking tickets, red light camera tickets, speeding tickets and other moving violations, keeping the Denver boot off your car and updating attendees on new driving laws that effect pedestrian and biking safety, and much more.
