Thousands of Chicago Drivers Overbilled at Parking Meters

If you've ever gotten a ticket for having an expired meter, there's a good chance you were overbilled!

You park, you pay, you stay too long, you expect to get a ticket. It happens all the time! If that happens in most neighborhoods, the ticket is supposed to be cheaper than what you’d pay downtown. However according to an investigation by CBS, the city has issued thousands of tickets to drivers outside of the city's central business district as if they'd parked downtown. Meaning they're overcharging people for their parking tickets.

Good luck getting a refund... I think I'll stick to parking garages, just to be on the safe side!
