    Re: Car2Go….One day, press will stop taking every single claim made by local elected officials on transportation issues as valid on their face. One day.

    Tunney seems to think cars are fixed into parking spaces and there is no turnover.

  • Carter O’Brien

    To be fair, in the 44th ward there are tons and tons of cars that rarely move. Lots of people move here and figure they will just tough out street parking, which results in little turnover and empowers the “I told you so” crowd.

  • Tooscrapps

    I’m not saying parking is a breeze by any measure. Some blocks are worse than others of course. Mine (Broadway/Surf) is usually pretty full 24/7. My friend’s (Wellington and Ashland) is pretty empty during the day, but there are spots to be found at night.

    To think a few of these small cars are going to tip the scales is just foolish.

  • Carter O’Brien

    A few is obviously no big deal, but if you’re Tunney you’re probably still remembering how the Cubs wanted just a few night games – and now you see where we are. Precedent, precedent, precedent.

  • Tooscrapps

    Tunney voted for the Parking Meter deal. As far as I’m concerned, he shouldn’t be lecturing anyone on parking or street space use!

  • Carter O’Brien

    No argument there. Every last alderman that voted for that should be fired.

  • Cameron Puetz

    The cost of providing shuttle service to Oak Brook seems really high. Assuming 6 round trips a day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, the cost of service to Hinsdale works out to $67/round trip for a 10 mile round trip van service.

    No, tried under the RICO statutes as well as embezzlement from the City of Chicago. After conviction, nice new orange jumpsuits for their no star enforced vacation adventures. And following RICO property seizure rules (which I have always believed unconstitutional but have been upheld by our sorry excuse for a Supreme Court) anything they own which they bought while on the city payroll…
