OTLlogo-1920x1080How early are you up on Saturday mornings?

Most likely it depends on the quantity of adult beverages you consumed the night before, right?

But, if you behave yourself tonight and get up between 6 and 7 AM, you can catch the Parking Ticket Geek on WGN Radio‘s Outside the Loop Radio with the handsome and affable Mike Stephen.

Mike and the Geek are going to discuss the issue of residential permit parking in Chicago and…how drivers can avoid, and if ticketed, challenge and beat parking tickets for RPP violations.
