Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno wants to help 1st ward drivers learn how to
deal with these stressful situations when he presents the Chicago Driver
Survivor Seminar on Saturday, February 5th from 11 AM to 1:30 PM.
This FREE event will be held at Moonshine Bar & Restaurant located at 1824
W. Division Street in the Wicker Park neighborhood.
The Chicago Driver Survival Seminar is a two and a half hour motorist
education boot camp to arm Chicago drivers with the basic tools of
avoiding and fighting parking tickets, understanding and avoiding red
light camera tickets, dealing with speeding and other traffic tickets,
keeping the Denver boot off your car and keeping drivers up to speed on
recent changes to driving laws.
The seminar was created by Mike Brockway (aka The Parking Ticket Geek) the
publisher of The Expired Meter.com (a local website providing news and
advice on driving and parking), to help local drivers get a better
understanding of these issues.
While the Parking Ticket Geek will discuss how to deal with parking
tickets, the National Motorist Association’s Barnet Fagel will speak to
drivers about red light cameras and speeding tickets.
“It’s a way for the ordinary citizen to take steps to protect them self,”
said Fagel. “The seminar will give drivers better insight into how to
navigate Chicago’s challenging streets.”
Because seating is limited, drivers should register for the event at:
Seating will be given on a first come, first serve basis, so it is
recommended that interested motorists respond quickly.
