Tag Archives: Blizzard of 2011
I recently received a citation for Improperly Displayed City Sticker.
Which was given for a good reason there was not one on the windshield and the car is registered to an address within the city limits of Chicago.
I have been living in New Orleans for the past 6 months working for the federal government, and yes my car was with me. While there I had an apartment, obtained a Louisiana State ID, and even obtained a New Orleans residential parking/city sticker so that I could park my vehicle within the City limits of New Orleans.
So my job ended and I moved back to Chicago around the 20th of December. I was cited 01/05/11. I was wondering if I would fall within the 30 day grace period for new residents to Chicago?
What you think do I have a good argument?
What a nice warm welcome Mayor Daley gave you on your return to the Windy City Colin!
But based on your circumstances, your documentation from New Orleans and your time line, I don’t see why this wouldn’t work to have the city sticker is dismissed.
Dude Stranded On LSD Finally Finds His Car
Around 1000 abandoned vehicles were towed off of Lake Shore Drive after last Tuesday night’s blizzard. Over the course of the last few days, while 99.9% of them were recovered from a handful of parking lots in the last few days, one car went missing.
Drew Siegert, who was one driver who got stuck on LSD during the blizzard, was coming up empty trying to track down his vehicle. He called 311 multiple times, checked the special website the the city set up, but no dice–no car
That is, until today when the city called to tell him his Toyota Camry was up in Lakeview according to CBS Chicago.
Somehow, some way, Siegert’s car found its way into a parking spot at Broadway at Wellington.
Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) announced Saturday afternoon that the parking enforcement stoppage due to the blizzard will end in the Central Business District on Monday. All enforcement, including parking meters will begin at 9 AM.
The rest of the city will see a resumption of parking enforcement starting Tuesday at 9 AM.
The Central Business District is essentially downtown and then some, but is defined by the boundaries of Oak Street on the north, Roosevelt Road on the south, Halsted Street on the west, with Lake Michigan as the eastern boundary.
Sources: All Parking Enforcement Stopped Until Monday
While the city has not made it public, the Department of Revenue has halted all parking enforcement until this coming Monday due to the blizzard and it’s aftermath.
The Expired Meter has confirmed, through multiple sources within the Department of Revenue and SERCO, that all enforcement personnel have been asked to stand down and stop issuing parking tickets until Monday.
