This poor guy, his car got the boot.  Its a bit funny though that there was a pay box sign right by his booted vehicle.  Chicago parking has gotten more ridiculous this year with the hike in fees that started in January.  It can now cost you as much as $5 an hour to park in the loop.  What is worse is the city has sold the rights to the parking meters to an outside company.  They are ruthless with their parking tickets.

Obviously this guy had several unpaid parking tickets, which are not cheap in Chicago.  It's very unfortunate to see even though he did it to himself.  Come on Chicago low the rates on parking already.

    One of my biggest complaints about living in Chicago was the transportation. The el takes forever, buses always require transfers unless you just happen to be headed for the exact same street somewhere else in the city, and driving/parking is horrid. It’s one thing I do NOT miss about living in the city!
