City To Cops: You Aren't Writing Enough Tickets

Commented Aug 17, 2010 at 20:36:54 in Chicago

“I came home late one night, I live in Hyde Park at the Newport Condominiums. There was absolutely no place to park, so I pulled to the back of the building near a garage door that's never used. I sat there and waited for a spot to open up, but it doing so, I fell asleep. I was awoken by Chicago Police officers who asked why I was parked there and asked me to get out of the car. In doing so, I inadvertently locked my keys in my car. Not knowing it, the Police officer ( who was no joke, 350lbs) then told me to move my car...I reached into my pocket, but couldn't find my keys. He then got mad at me when I couldn't move my car...getting belligerent with me. At this point him and I stood screaming at each other. He told me that if I didn't move my car that minute, that he was writing me a ticket. I told him that my keys were now locked in my car!! He wrote me 2 parking tickets and left with my keys locked in my car. I went to my building security and they called University of Chicago Police, who then unlocked my car. This is the kind of crap that Chicago Police are coming to. I've totally lost respect for the police despite some of my best friends serving. I am sick and tired of this treatment!”

“Post Script: If you get a ticket near the Newport watch out for the address. I used to park in front of the cab only sign next to the Ramada because when the stupid CPD would give me a ticket they would have the address @ in the 1600 block of east 49th street which would mean my car was parked in the lake or they would put it at 4900 S. Chicago Beach ( Lakeshore Dr ) and I'd would show the hearing officer photos that that's the wrong address. So if you haven't paid those tickets check the address he wrote. You might beat them. Have photos. Peace :) Let's beat the man !”

“I have a condo in the Newport too,years ago- no place to park I waited in the loading zone ( after 1 in the morning when NO ONE was loading) before driving around for the 10th time to find a space a CPD car pulled up next to me and asked what I was doing. I explained that there was no where to park and I had an hour to use the loading zone. One officer said I better be gone in a hour. I'm stubborn I tried to wait the hour but finally I went and found a space near the 50/50 building where the President used to work-out.I would see the CPD drive around the Newport all the time looking for cars to ticket even though it's next to a hotel and the Alderman refuses to grant us permit parking. Luckily, she'll be gone soon.I have immense dislike for the CPD. Most I have encountered are power hungry thugs.My mom has a handicap sticker so I ride w/her as much as I can because she doesn't have feed the " meter " and other times when I can I park where they don't exist and other times I just pay for parking. I'd rather pay 25.00 than give " Daley's Deal " w/TAZ a quarter. I hope the city loses revenue by people just going to the suburbs and the malls w/ FREE parking. Time for Daley to go.”
