you can complain about about it for another 15 years (and i'm sure you will), and i'll bet dollars to donuts that absolutely nothing will change from a government standpoint.

the only way the parking podiums in chicago go away is through market forces as the demand for personally owned automobiles dries up in the coming decades.
Do you think I don't know this?

Of course that's true. And downtown Chicago will be the worse for it, for the rest of our lifetimes and beyond. This forum is full of wishful thinking and I'm contributing my own.

Meanwhile I had two meetings in the City (of London) today and didn't see a single sign of a parking garage, walking all over the place. Sigh.
