Ticketing in Action – Getting a Parking Ticket in Chicago’s Loop

Someone got a parking ticket in the Loop today.  Here’s a photo taken at Washington and Wells of an individual who is part of the private ticket army that descends on Chicago’s streets.  Here’s a picture of the fairy ticket mother in action.

What was the ticket for?  Did the car owner refuse to pay the $5 an hour street parking rate? Did they forget?  Maybe they received a ticket for parking too far from the curb.  This is an all too often occurrence that I feel deeply for.  Every single time I’m in the loop I see this.  It’s happening more and more often.  Ticketing, towing… Parking is crazy in Chicago.
