I am curious as to how many people got tickets on 01/02/14 for being parked on the wrong side of the road, for snow removal... and how many were made to pay the ticket and how many tickets were dismissed.  

My husband took teh day off work to contest the ticket and he had to pay the fine.  Our neighbor took the lazy route and contested by mail with the exact information we had, as I gave it to him!  AND his ticket was dismissed.  SAME ticket SAME date SAME time SAME street location!!  We lost6 out on a day of pay AND had to pay the fine.

This is completely unfair and the Village needs to step up and give everyone a refund, for those who were ticketsd in the 8500 N. block of Hamilton who got a ticket on 01/02/14 between 12:15ish and 12:45.  We were there for 30 minutes for our parking lot to be cleaned.  That was it!

Village of Skokie is unfair & INCONSISTENT!!  Step up to the plate and take responsibility to making some pay and not others for the same exact ticket!!

On even days you park on the even side of the street and on odd days you park on the odd side of the street. I wish the village would do more enforcement. Half the time my block does not get plowed because the people of the condos and apartment do not move their cars

Erin, last I checked laws are applied to all... it is unfortunate that you got a ticket, however, had you obeyed the law you would not have been fined. As for contesting via mail or taking the day off of work, you also had the option to "take the lazy route" but chose not too. So, the way I see it is... for two bad decisions made by YOU... we should just "forgive" your ticket... sounds like sour grapes... get over it and deal with you own mistakes and stop relying on the "system to right your wrongs!
