Why were you parked facing the wrong way? What is the deal? 120.00, you get a boot on it too?

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Just curious, why do you have RV plates on your truck?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

$25 seems more like it. My friend had a dakota with B plates and he would get ticket all the time at my place in Elmwood Park.

Because with RV plates you can operate the vehicle on Blvds. and Drives. ie...Austin Boulevard and Lake Shore Drive.

Its all a joke! If you have truck plates you are NOT allowed to operate in the left lane of a highway as opposed to RV's where you can. Its more advantageous to have RV. plates.

Okay, that makes sense. So with a truck you aren't allowed to have regular plates?

No. You have B plates which are red. They cost more and really give you no benefit. Thats why i got rid of the truck plates and went with U.S. Veteran plates. Gets me out of a few tickets as well and i stopped being "bothered" on the highway and blvds/drives.

then they will probably give you a ticket cause they figure if you work for the governmemt you should know the law. i used to have one on my old car, parked on the street inside my housing community in wheeling, and still got a $50 ticket. its a lose-lose situation

You should be able to get veteran plates like Kelly's

Trucks are wierd in this state. Supposedly the plating system go's by weight.

so for example
car= regular plate
F-150= B plate
F-250 GVWR 8500+ + D plate

Expedition= regular car plate (same wieght actualy heavier than f-150)
Excursion= regular car plate (is an f-250 and just as heavy if not heavier.)

I'llnever figure out why they give the SUV's a break religiously but my pickup is supposed to have a d plate anddrive 10 miles an hour slower onthe highway, (YA Right!!!!)

I'll check the DMV and see if I can get a Vet plate.

Yeah, that is really weird. I get a regular car plate for my SUV, but someone with a truck that weighs less than mine has to have a different plate. What is the reasoning behind that?

that's not a garantee. They can still give you the ticket. Most cops don't, but if your neighbor is calling or some cop needs his quota he'll give ya the ticket. Trust me, I almost went to jail fighting about this at the jefferson park pd

Is it true that to run an RV plate on a pickup you need to have the bed covered? I remember hearing that, too weird. The whole SUV thing is totally inconsistent, screw the workers and help the soccer moms :bullshit

I'llnever figure out why they give the SUV's a break religiously but my pickup is supposed to have a d plate anddrive 10 miles an hour slower onthe highway, (YA Right!!!!)
Here's how it really works:

Illinois divides vehicles into two divisions: vehicles meant to carry less than 10 passengers (first division), and vehicles meant to carry 10 or more passengers, pull cargo or freight, or to serve as living quarters. Thus, your pickup, being designed to haul cargo, is a second division vehicle; your neighbor's SUV, meant to carry 8 passengers, is a first division vehicle.

Just about all first-division vehicles can carry passenger plates; the exceptions are taxis, limos, and other commercial vehicles. Therefore, your neighbor's Ford Leviathan, weighing in at 17,500 lbs., but having only 9 seats, is a passenger car and carries passenger plates. (However, if your neighbor takes out all the seats, it becomes a truck and has to pay truck rates.)

Second division trucks can be plated two ways: by mileage (rare), or by GVWR (not weight, but weight rating). Thus, your pickup, with a GVWR of between 8,000 and 12,000 pounds, must display a D-class plate (and must carry the registration card at all times, incidentally).

RVs are defined as either traditional campers (kitchen and bath facilities), or as pickups with camper tops and a bed in the bed (or, more accurately, temporary living facilities). They pay reduced rates compared to other similarly-rated trucks.

Now, the problem is that, until fairly recently, ordinary people didn't drive large trucks. Therefore, the entire registration schedule was set up around the assumption that anyone registering a truck was doing so in order to do business as a freight carrier. The rate structure and the rules for trucks reflect that: if you're making money with your truck, then for better or worse, the State wants its cut. To be fair, the rates are also set up on the assumption--a true assumption, from what I've seen--that heavier vehicles do more damage to the highway and therefore should pay a larger share of road maintenance money.

B-truck plates are actually a concession to reality: once regular civilans began driving pickup trucks for private use, there was enough demand for the state to ease the rules on pickups and other light trucks. Hence, the B-truck plate pays passenger rates, but is still legal for carrying cargo.

Unfortunately, most of the Chicagoland area's municipal governments are still operating under two outmoded assumptions:

a) Trucks are always used for business, and
b) Trucks are ugly.

Therefore, in an attempt to keep both the commercial enterprises and the ugly vehicles out of the nice parts of town, most towns around here broadly forbid overnight parking of trucks on residential streets, trucks on boulevards, and so on. The downside, as you know, is that many citizens' private vehicles cannot legally be parked within commuting distance of home. (Again, in fairness, this also keeps Cheapo Trucking from eating all the on-street parking spaces in order to avoid buying a truck parking lot, so it's not 100% bad.)

SUVs, being relatively new to the popular market, are something that nobody really has figured out yet. (Chicago is one exception: large SUVs are subject to an additional $15 (?) city sticker charge, though no particular parking restrictions.) If they were smart, they'd add a plate class for first-division vehicles over 8,000 lbs. GVWR and charge D-plate fees for it.

The only real solution, as always, is to write to your local elected officials and explain your situation and your problem, and ask for their help in updating the rules to reflect modern vehicle ownership.
