Chicago "No Parking" street signs contain new fine print...

Blog May 27-2008

Always a fixture in Chicago's neighborhoods, the "Street Sweeping - No Parking" signs have a new look this Spring.

The fine print (or not-so-fine-print) foretells of new photo enforcement. No longer will a lazy officer slowly troll down side streets hand-writing (gasp - the horror) parking tickets for unfortunate residents who didn't see the sign put up the night before. Nope, a high-tech van simply zips through the neighborhood snapping photos of every license plate on the street. You'll get your parking ticket in the mail.

How convenient!
