CHICAGO (CBS) — If you’ve ever been confused by Chicago’s residential parking system, or gotten a ticket when you parked on a zoned street, City Clerk Susana Mendoza hopes you’ll appreciate a new addition to her website.
Chicago has more than 1,400 residential parking zones.
“Yes, you heard that right. There are 1,429 residential parking zones in the city of Chicago,” Mendoza said. “We added one more while we were talking.”
Mendoza said there hasn’t been any good way to keep track of which streets were off-limits to drivers without zone permits.
There was a book, but Mendoza said “The only copies of this book were found at the very front counters of the office of the city clerk. So not super-convenient for people to get to.”
