IT’S THE SPECIAL LOCAL PARKING SHOW…

(broadcasting on the “I’ll be right back after I move my car” radio station WLUW-FM (88.7) Chicago)

Mike Stephen talks to a Chicagoan about her unjust towing experience, chats at last with Ald. Vi Daley (43rd) about parking meters and towing problems, and checks in with the Parking Ticket Geek about city vehicle sticker issues.

Mike Broadcasts From His Car

Through the magic of radio Mike anchors this week’s show from his car.  Unfortunately for our host, in no way does the below picture look anything like his ride.

Ali Montag Chicagoan who had her car towed

Ali had her car towed in the Lincoln Park area (43rd Ward).  She tells us her story…a story that resembles what happened to Mike in that same area a year ago!


Vi Daley – Alderman of the 43rd Ward

After repeated attempts, Ald. Daley finally agreed to come on the show!  You might remember what happened last year when Mike got his car towed in Lincoln Park.  They discuss that incident and others like it as well as the parking meter rate increase.
