But Sunday, the Cubs play another American League team, the hated New York Yankees in another night game starting at 7:05 PM.
Remember, this means Wrigley Field night game parking restrictions go into effect starting at 5:00 PM.
Don’t even think of parking on a side street in the LV-2 or 383 RPP zones without a properly zoned RPP sticker or RPP guest pass.
Otherwise, an expensive ticket and a tow is in your future.
That’s three 7:05 PM back-to-back starts, which means three nights of Wrigley Field night game parking restrictions in LV-2 and 383 residential permit parking zones. The restrictions kick in at 5 PM and last through 10 PM.
Remember, if you don’t have the proper RPP stickers or passes, you can’t park on residential side streets essentially a mile in every direction from Wrigley Field.
If you park at the Whole Foods parking lot on Canal Street just south of downtown, don’t leave the store or your car will be towed–even if you’re parked in a handicapped spot with a legit disabled placard.
The Chicago Cubs try to even up the series against the Houston Astros after yesterday’s loss tonight at 7:05 PM at Wrigley Field.
This night game, of course, means parking restrictions for street parking around Wrigley Field go into effect at 5 PM.
We encourage all our readers to make sure they have fled the Lakeview area well before 5 PM.
Remember, if you’re caught parking on a side street with zone 383 residential permit parking restrictions (which is the entirety of the 44th ward) or LV-2 signs, without the proper RPP stickers or guest passes, you flirt with being ticketed and towed.
This Tuesday evening kicks off the start of two back-to-back night games at Wrigley Field.
In other words, night game parking restrictions are in place all over the Wrigleyville and greater Lakeview neighborhoods starting at 5 PM and lasting until 10 PM.
This means, if you do not have the proper residential parking permits or RPP guest passes stuck to your windshield your car faces a ticket and potentially a trip to the auto pound courtesy of a Streets & Sanitation tow truck.
It’s Cubs vs. Giants tonight at Wrigley with a 6:10 start.
Night game parking restrictions on side streets start at 5 PM.
Don’t drive into Wrigleyville unless you’ve got the right parking passes.
Just say no to the tow!
Make sure you move your car off any street around Wrigley Field marked with a residential permit parking zone sign for LV-2 or 383 by 5 PM or face a ticket and a tow. That is unless you have the proper residential parking permit or guest pass.
Parking restrictions are in place for Wrigley Field night games for five hours from 5 PM until 10 PM.
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.
UPDATE: The city has reversed course and now both spokespersons for Chicago Police Department and 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney’s office are saying there will NOT be any enforcement of Wrigley Field night game parking restrictions for tonight’s game.
Earlier today, we reported that enforcement would be taking place tonight based on statements from OEMC.
“Since tonight’s night game was not previously publicized to the community, the City will not be enforcing LV-2 or Cubs Night Game restrictions,” explained Max Bever, Community Outreach Director for the 44th Ward.
Bever said that this decision came about after talks with OEMC and the 19th & 23rd police districts.
What To Do When You Get Towed By The City
Where the hell did my car go?!?
Your mind races with panic when you come back to the spot where your car used to be just minutes ago.
Did I forget where I parked? Was my car stolen? Am I just confused?
The most likely answer is your car just got towed.
What Do I Do Now?
The first thing to do is not panic.
