CHICAGO — City officials are fed up with truck drivers leaving their semis on busy North Park and Sauganash streets for days at a time, Ald. Margaret Laurino (39th) said.
The illegally-parked trucks have become a common sight since the beginning of January, especially along Peterson Avenue near Hollywood Park, according to Manuel Galvan, a spokesman for Laurino.
"It wouldn't be illegal if they were just loading and unloading, but they appear to be parking there on Fridays and just leaving them there until Monday," Galvan said. "There are safety issues when you're cutting off visibility into the park, plus it's just unsightly."
The alderman posted on Facebook earlier this month asking constituents to email her office at firstname.lastname@example.org if they see any of the scofflaw trucks.
The trucks are being booted and ticketed on sight, she said.
