    Delivery drivers are causing traffic jams by disobeying “No Stopping” signs, because there is almost ZERO enforcement. I really don’t understand why the City is passing so much revenue.

  • “A city of Chicago diagram illustrated the crux of the problem: bus and bike lanes take up much of Washington Street.”

    Nice of CBS to tell us who’s really at fault.

    Delivery companies will just pass the costs of tickets on to customers. What will really discourage this is towing or Denver Boots. Once deliveries are actually missed, behavior will change quickly.

    Another low hanging fruit there would be to prohibit deliveries during rush hour. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen morning rush hour traffic on Madison grind to a halt because of stopped beer trucks. @#$ deliver after 10 AM, @#$@#
