Tickets and nuisance regulations are key sources of revenue for America’s (generally dysfunctional) large cities.
This week, a task force examining Chicago’s ticketing and debt collection practices released its recommendations for reform. The task force, officially called the Chicago Fines, Fees & Access Collaborative, is made up of aldermen, city department heads and community advocates.
Well, if “aldermen, city department heads, Chicago community advocates” are on this we can rest easy. Those guys are sure to stamp out corruption and crony practices.
