    • Sun-Times: Lori should reconsider Uber's offer to guarantee tax revenue (which won't fight congestion)
    • LOL! ABC asks are short green light times -- in place before Chicago had traffic cams -- "red light traps"?
    • Not so funny: RLC companies can hire public officials as sales agents without disclosing it (Tribune)
    • Trib editorial: Red light cams are a good idea but the state needs to close the sales agent loophole
    • Driver who killed cyclist Lee Luellen, 40, charged, CPD retracts victim-blaming statement (Tribune)
    • Disabled veteran robbed on Red Line near 35th Street (ABC)
    • Development by 43rd Station geared towards young Black professionals who don't own cars (Crain's)

I’d like to give a big thanks to everyone who has donated so far this year to help us raise $50K by our December 1 deadline in order to win the $50K challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust. Can you help us win the grant by chipping in? You can make a tax-exempt donation here.

Thanks for your support, and enjoy your autumn.

– John Greenfield, editor, Streetsblog Chicago
