The owner of 38 cars took all parking in one of the neighborhoods of ChicagoNovember 20, 2018
The actions of the owner recognized legal
Residents of one of the neighborhoods on North Kenmore Avenue in Uptown, Chicago, complained about the lack of free parking spaces. According to them, everything was taken by one person who owns 38 cars and rents them through a mobile application. In this case, the actions of the owner of the machines do not violate the current legislation.
A member of the local municipality, James Kappelman, who lives in the same block, believes that it is not allowed to park 38 cars in public spaces. However, this requires the adoption of an appropriate law. According to NBC, it was previously blocked by Governor Bruce Rauner.
Also, there was information that the owner of these cars uses the Turo application, but a company representative denied this. Vice President Michel Peacock said that the majority of cars parked in this part of the city are not registered in Turo. However, there are those left without a sticker. These cars, according to Peacock, can be evacuated legally, thereby making room for residents of the quarter.
In February, it was reported that a resident of German Düsseldorf found an unusual solution to the problem of parking other people too close to the driveway of his house. He bought two Smart city cars, parked them at the edges of the road and began to use restrictive buoys.
