Winter Parking Rant

Maybe this post is a little late because the winter parking news tidbit hit the airwaves at least a week ago. What can I say? I’m a on delayed thinking. But correct me if I am wrong, but don’t most of those signs say something about No Parking if Snow is over 2 Inches? How DOES the city get away with it?

    They get away with it because it’s necessary. The winter parking rules in this city started after 1967, when the city completely shut down because of snow. People were asking “how DOES the city get away with it?”. Nowadays, there are very few big cities in the world that are as good as Chicago when it comes to snow removal and traffic restoration. These parking rules are part of the reason why. Preventing people from leaving their cars on major arteries allows streets and san. to clear the roads when they need to be, so people could get around.

    Find someplace else to park. It’s for the greater good.
