I am currently writing a post called "Welcome to Chicago-A Beginners Guide To Driving In Chicago," that gives newcomers to our city the lowdown. My original title was "Violated! What To Do To Keep Chicago From Sticking It In Your A**."
As much as I think it's OK to get pissed and outraged at parking tickets, booting, the crappy system surrounding both, and Mayor Daley, it can never be acceptable to lash out at city workers in any way--verbally, physically, or ballistically.
Another crap ticket courtesy of the city of Chicago. If a cop wrote this ticket, they were being lazy and should have looked up where your plates were registered. Instead they took the easy way out and wrote the ticket.
