Note from Alderman
On Thursday night's CAPS meeting, we discussed continued problems in the Bucktown Wicker Park zone with drivers leaving cars unattended and running while getting gas, delivering food, or going in to stores for purchases. Several more delivery and Uber vehicles have been stolen in both daylight and evening hours this month from simply being left running and unattended. Police will be posting flyers, posters and stickers at problem locations as reminders to shut off vehicles and remove keys when exiting.
