    On the jobs board: Traffic Engineer IV — Chicago

    Prepares engineering plans for new and existing streets, including design of traffic calming devices.

    Must have the permanent use of an automobile that is properly insured,
    including a clause specifically insuring the city of Chicago from
    accident liability.

    So we require all the people in the city working on traffic calming to also own a motor vehicle in the city? No wonder…

    Regarding “Kinetic Wall” Parking Garage:

    It’s a 3 minute walk from an L station and they need 137 spots? Why don’t we have parking maximums, too?
