chicago parking meters

Quote:
Parking Meter Operations

Hours of Operation and Rates

The hours of operation and rates for parking meters vary throughout the City. This information should be listed on each individual parking meter. If it is not, or you would like additional information, please call 312-744-4500
give em hell gar


I thought part of the privatization was to allow them to collect on Sundays too.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,4271694.story

Just claim to be an ignorant suburbanite and say you're adhering to the posted collection times on the meter

Contest it by mail...as long as it has the right date on it you should be covered. send copies of your pictures and write a letter that the officer (or parking enforcement personel, which is more likely) must have not realized it was Sunday and that you were not required to feed the meter. It will be months before you hear back from them.
Make copies of everything and keep the originals. If you should be ruled against by the hearing officer...appeal and bring it to the attention of your Alderman's office and the Mayors office and the media. This is getting to be an unbeliveable nuiscience. Don't let them get away with it.

Meters are now collected on Sundays. It was part of privitization. You're mostlikely gonna have to pay.

You wanna see my itinerary?

Nope that's definitely a cops ticket you can tell by the fact the hand write it. Metermaids print theirs out by computer and slip it in a envelope and take a picture of the offense with their little machine

I contested an incorrectly-issued ticket in person and it was tossed out. No way that should stick.

The meter clearly states that it is Monday through Saturday. If that area requires Sunday payment, the meter is incorrect.That's not your fault. This should not stick...but this is becoming a nightmare for everyone who gets a meter ticket these days... I still say fight it and raise a stink if necessary...this was a bad deal all around for the citizens of Chicago!

I just noticed maybe he should have given that car in the picture a ticket for being more then 16 inches off the curb which is a violation also:O)

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Maybe the traffic unit on LSD but the rest of the police department is 20 years behind in technology both in the stations and MOSTLY in your beat on unmaintained cars. And that 1990 brick running ICAM between the front seats should have been updated to something more appropriate consistent with the current century

I ask nexus what percent of those cars goes over 40mph when floored and doesn't have a trans issue

The only car I see that is up to date is the SUV's. It was earth shattering when they put the Blue LEDS in unmarked cars and called it a A step Forward up from the wig wags and strobes in the front headlights

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
