Another Chicago Parking Meter Increase?

Are you fucking kidding me? It seems that the parking meter rates in Chicago are going up again. To make matters worse, the city gets absolutely nothing out of it since the Chicago Parking meter operation was handed over to a private company. I love Mayor Daley, I really do, but this whole Chicago Parking meter thing is just bullshit.

Chicago gets a bad rap. I know that. I am related to people who have been the victim of that. I love the city and almost everything about it, but this is just bullshit and even I will stand up and say that. What the hell? Like things aren’t hard on people enough. It’s already expensive to drive a car in Chicago. With an increase in Chicago parking meter rates, it’s going to become even more unaffordable. And it doesn’t just affect drivers — it also affects the people who operate the businesses that people drive to. Sure, the bigger businesses probably won’t feel the hit, but what about the few mom and pop shops still left in our city?

This is wrong. What pisses me off even more is that my family doesn’t seem to give a damn that it’s wrong. I don’t care who is profiting from this shit, I don’t think it’s right. It’s just my two cents but in my opinion, if anyone was interested in what I think about this and if I agreed with it, I don’t like it, I don’t agree with it and I think it’s bullshit that it’s happening.
