You know the drilll, hang with friends and have a few, ride your bike some, see some of Chicago's secluded nature spots, ride some more, discover a new bar (or one we haven't been to in a while), admire the full moon(s) and then hear me tell you about how my dog hates you because it is clearly your fault that I am not home with him. Cheers!We ride on a school night this month so be prepared to depart Gannon's at 9:15pm.See More

"Wow, WTF! Jana my heart goes out to you. I could not even imagine what you went through and what that would have felt like. I'm glad to hear that you didn't have any broken bones or worst not here with us. Wishing you a quick recovery!"

"It would be great if CDOT removed an entire lane of parked cars along Kimball Ave. and put in a Dearborn type lane. I used to live along that corridor and have experienced a few way to close aggressive drivers, one even pointing a gun at me for…"

"Here in Milwaukee, the city's Department of Public works handles parking enforcement.  Our cops, who are already spread thin, at least are relieved from parking enforcement duties."

"I've personally experienced an ambulance with no police appearing, and as I recall, others have posted about similar situations elsewhere on Chainlink. So even an ambulance does not guarantee active police involvement."

Jason W replied to Joe Sak's discussion Jana Kinsman could have been killed in Logan Square area last night by driver and pals thinking they're funny
"CPD would never order officers to stop enforcing parking. Parking violation money goes to the city. Also, it's the revenue guys that write 99% of the tickets, not cops, so they aren't diverting manpower to ticket writing. Speeding and…"
