- Chicago police handed out 43 citations to drivers who failed to stop for people using crosswalks.
It was part of a sting set up at Belmont and Orchard on Monday night.
Plainclothes officers used the crosswalks and cars that failed to yield got pulled over and ticketed. It's part of a city wide crackdown at crosswalks. It was the first night time sting.
The police department said during the day time stings it only handed out about 18 or 20 tickets.
Now about those take home cars. Who's losing them? We heard exempts who don't have 24 hour call out responsibilities and then everyone below that. About freaking time seeing as the abuses that have been pointed out here and elsewhere are nothing but a scandal in waiting.
