Downtown Parking Fines Could Triple This Week

Downtown parking fines could triple this week if the City Council moves to pass an ordinance meant to curb parking in traffic and bike lanes. “The city has designated hundreds of curbside loading accommodations for the delivery of freight downtown — yet delivery vehicles continue to regularly obstruct lanes of traffic to make their deliveries – often when curbside loading is available to them,” said Alderman Brendan Reilly (42nd Ward), in a statement to the Sun-Times. The ordinance passed out of the Committee on Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Monday, and is expected to be approved by the full City Council on Wednesday. Fines will go from $100 for a violation to $300. (Sun-Times)
