Watch Yourself on the Dan Ryan

Yes, the camera vans are finally upon us. Two of them are going to be in the Dan Ryan construction area for the next few months. The fine for speeding through the construction area is $375 for the first offense and $1,000 PLUS a suspended license for the second. The cameras are taking pictures of the plates and the drivers. Stories in the Tribune and Sun Times.

What we'd REALLY like to see however, is how many cars DON'T come back to the addresses and drivers that are photographed. The failure rate for deliverable citations is going to be rather high we think. How about some of our Trooper readers keep us informed of that little statistic?

In the meantime, we'd advise you to take steps to avoid getting a large hit in the wallet. Obey the law, avoid the Ryan, and maybe get one of these:

The city has a lease agreement in the works to position 10 unmarked white vans at strategic points throughout the city to do the same exact thing. The ordinance still is working its way through committee, but once it passes, it will be a reality. It was tested three months ago parked at 104 and Homan, parked for 45 minutes. 37 cars passed by, 23 were recorded as speeders. Ald Rugai (19) was in the van for the test. Lots of city workers are going to get tickets. I haven't heard a dollar amount for the fines yet. Also, the city's vans will be unmarked, but as of now, they have three small antennas on the roof.

I'll take my tax money elsewhere, along with my city pension. But I'll be damned if I live here one day past my retirement date!

The best way to get around this garbage is not own a car! Should you need a car have it titled, registered and insured to an relative who lives in another state! It should be registered to an surban address that does not require a city sticker.

Have that relative sign a power of attorney that allows you to buy.
sell, insure, or register that car on their behalf.

Drive like a celeb! Wear shades and a baseball cap.

They will stick their photo ticket up their own butts!

The department has no rules against department members driving borrowed cars do they?

It's really fun when the car's owner lives in Europe...

The best solutiuon to this problem is to move north and transfer to a north side district, then you don't have to use the Ryan. All you morons who brag non-stop about your "cheap" house on the south side can shove the $375 ticket up your ass! I might have paid twice as much for my house on the north side, but at least I can throw a rock in my neighborhood without hitting a crackhead. FUCK THE SOUTHSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While I'm on this rant, why the fuck do they need to "improve" the Ryan anyway. I doubt it's because people from the southside are complaining about congestion and long work commutes. The only people that use the Ryan are bustouts who need to get on the Skyway so they can blow all they're money on the boats!

Southside is nothin but a bunch of crackheads and hillbillies!!

It figures they tested the van at 104th and Homan. Just another way to suck money from the taxpayers. They know they would not get any money if it was set up in englewood.

HIT THE BRAKES!!!!!!!!!!

The consequences are far more telling....The first offense (and additional offenses for this type of ticket)are not eligible as a COURT SUPERVISION ticket. Same as a mover in a school zone. Goes on your record=your insurance goes up. Nice kick in the nuts even after the $350.00.

For the alderman Kool Aid question....The alders and little guy push the Kool Aid like the dealers have been pushing the "tainted" heroin. They have no desire to take any.

I would guess that it is your type that when you get off work, driving down the street, nobody around you sneak thru the redlights, blow thru the stop signs and do 80 MPH on surface streets. If you are pushing 95 on the x-ways, get nailed you'll be bitching about everyone else.

Regarding the Photoblocker, I said a consumer report, i.e. a television consumer report segment, did several tests using actually photo cameras and the three products that Photoblocker sells, including the spray, the cover and the filtered cover. The tests were done in cooperation with a local sheriffs office who radared the speeder, and the actual cameras that take pictures of the plates, In some instances the photostuff actually made the numbers easier to read. I made no reference to the Consumer Report magazine. Save your money it doesn't work. The same consumer report segment contacted various sources cited in Photoblocker adds, and several said they never tested the product, nor said it works. Save your money, or find alternate means of masking your plates.

Other Po's in traffic, public vehicle and 1st dist. have also written po's and fam. member's, along with numerous other dist's. whether by accident or circumstance. What is being alluded too is the tic. issue was intentional. Policeman hide behind the word cop.

WTF, there are other way's to handle your personal pissing contest besides calling out no back up for an officer. Cop's don't endanger other cop's over paper tic. B.S.

What mighy be also missing here, a tic. issued to Street's and San's Comm. Sanchez acting like a king pen on the highway, or how about the arbitration the officer's won over falisfied stats? Instead of getting behind the officer's winning a contract violation and writing clout Sanchez you incite endangerment to cop's. Maybe you have been in your cush spot way to long and never learned real police cop protocl.

You do not with intention endanger a fellow officer! If Burton and other's are guilty of like conduct the same goes! All this B.S. over paper tic's, handle your sh&t like a man or woman.

If you are involved in an off-duty traffic accident and need to call 9-1-1, unless it is a 10-1, do not tell the call taker you are a P.O.

If you do tell them, it is likely that Operations Command will be notified and will want to ask all kinds of questions and complicate your life.

Best to be discrete, on the phone, with the other party and discretely tell the responding officer.

Don't take money out of coppers and their families pockets with your bullshit paper tics, it's called professional courtesy, it's bad enough when I see them writing the citizen with the license all the time instead of the jagoff that's suspended 5 times over just because a tvb is a pain in the ass. Realpolice cop protocol? the real police don't write cops period! so you obviously aren't the real police if you advocate writing coppers.

Regarding Don't endanger post. So you added the last paragrah and twisted what I said. No where did I reference writing fellow officer's. The issue was endangerment not responding to an officer's call for assist over alleged issue of personal agenda paper tic's.

For your info. I do not nor have I ever nailed a copper in my KMA tenure. Your add on to my post shows the f^&ked up mindset on this job. Make my statement of safety to another first, fit it into your twisted personal beef. This is 7th grade B.S.

There's other ways to handle intenional tic's and if you were the real police you would also cope, deal with it and move on. Only a coward post's a call out to endanger another sworn brother or sister on a blog and they are not real cop's. Get pissed, get even but who the f%$k in hell are you or anyone that would participate and or aid in the potential harm to any fellow officer!

Here's one for you since you have yet to figure it out, how can you guarantee every copper you don't write has never written another. You can't and we still give a pass. The posting by you or whoever, which I don't give a shit about the real cause is a personal hard on for another, I don't like you for what ever reason nonsense and a boner of contention. A personal pissing contest not being handled like a man or woman. Bet it's the same poster that alleges Austin keeps everyone's names that he stops as a list. How does the poster know this? This shit is personal and reeks of rumor central, attack the officer for my benefit. I lay odd's the posting's were either made by you or responded to by the in house click club. Get off the koolaid it's proven it's bad for your mind.
