Getting parking tickets can be very stressful business. It makes you wonder just how far people will go to avoid a parking ticket. One San Francisco woman went 12 blocks. With a traffic cop on the hood of her car!
The Huffington Post reports that Bo Mounsombath, 33, was trying to get out of a parking citation by swiping a ticket from another car and placing it on her own. Obviously, that old trick wasn’t slick enough to get by San Francisco’s finest, and while a traffic officer was writing her a ticket, Ms. Mounsombath hit the gas and took the officer for a half mile ride on the hood of her car.
Usually, parking tickets are only a petty, albeit expensive, nuisance. However, you never can tell when your morning can shift gears from facing a $50 fine to facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Don’t push your luck and don’t let parking tickets drive you insane. Keep your cool and book your parking space ahead of time with ParkJockey.
ParkJockey Launches One-Touch Parking™ App in Chicago
Chicagoans Can Now Drive With Peace of Mind & Let ParkJockey Handle the Rest – from Locating to Reserving Parking & Cashless Payments
CHICAGO ─ September 15, 2014 ─ ParkJockey, developers of the “One-Touch Parking™” solution, announces its time-saving and eco-friendly parking locator and reservation tool is now available in Chicago. The no-cost mobile application drastically reduces the time spent searching for a parking spot by providing parking locations, estimates walking distances and even learns your parking-specific preferences so users can make an informed and smart parking reservation, pay for it in advance, and seamlessly sync their reservation with their calendar.
“ParkJockey rolled out its One-Touch Parking reservation application in London, Miami and New York earlier this year with rapid adoption rates and we expect to bring the same level of relief to the more than 2.6 million Chicago residents and nearly 40 million people who visit the city annually,” commented Managing Partner, James Weiss, ParkJockey Chicago. “Chicago is known as the City that Works and ParkJockey’s parking application is going to make sure its dedicated workforce gets to work with less stress and without overpaying for their parking.”
At launch, ParkJockey’s application included access and reservation capabilities for more than 6,000 parking spaces in Chicago and this number is expected to grow exponentially by the end of the year.
“Our advanced team of technology experts and business leaders have invested and developed an application that eases logistical challenges for commuters and travelers, while also helping to ensure parking lot owners and operators are operating at their full capacity and revenue potential,” remarked CEO and Co-Founder of ParkJockey, Umut Tekin. “But we are not stopping there. ParkJockey is already planning to roll out its second application by the end of the year. The premium application has not yet been announced but can best be described as a ‘virtual valet’; we are expecting it to revolutionize parking as we know it.”

Convenience and safety are one of the main reasons you need a garage to keep your car. However, the garage can be used for many things…
In the UK, a study in 2006 showed that the majority of car garages were used not to store their cars, but for storing household items etc. Quoted figures from the RAC Foundation, found that while 53 per cent of households had access to a garage, only 24 per cent used them and claimed many garages were “not being used for their proper purpose.” Back then, this astonished a group of MPs who wanted people to make the most of their garage. They proposed an introduction to a paid permit for space, just to ease on-street parking problems – which didn’t go down too well!
In London, it is claimed that there are over 3,000 unused car garages. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, recently back in Feb 2014 wanted to spark a garage business revolution in London, by helping start-up companies find space to begin their adventure in central locations. Now it’s flourishing, with many start-up companies taking advantage of the affordable rent in order to become the best next thing, similarly to the likes of Apple & Disney etc.
So in the UK garages are not getting used for their ultimate purpose. In Singapore they’ve taken it to the a whole other level, literally. Try having your car as one of the centre pieces to your home – for aesthetics, rather than function.
Hamilton estates in Singapore have found a novel and technically advance way for their tenants to keep an eye on, or show off their prize procession cars, they can keep them right outside their windows. This may sound normal, but not when you window is 10 floors up!
Take a look for yourselves.
World class professional boxing is returning to US Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox August 23, 2014, starting at 6:00 PM. Local fight promoters, Hitz Boxing and Round 3 Productions signed on to stage this event at the South Side stadium. Last year’s event attracted 8,200 fans for the first outdoor boxing match in over a century.
The fights marked the first outdoor boxing event since 1962 at Comiskey Park when Sonny Liston knocked out Floyd Patterson to win the World’s heavyweight title.
This time around, Chicago’s own Donovan “Don Da Bomb” George (25-4-2, 22 Kos) will be fighting for the Super Middleweight World Title against Dyah Davis of Coconut Creek, Florida. Both of the boxing promoters for this event, Bobby Hitz of Hitz Boxing and Frank Mugnolo of Round 3 Productions signed George to their contract. When George won his first Golden Gloves championship it was Bobby Hitz who presented him with his trophy.
Hitz Boxing and Round 3 Productions just recently started working together in 2013. Hitz holds the record for longest running boxing promoter in Chicagoland.
Two other hometown boxing favorites representing Chicago are Frankie “Time Bomb” Scalise and Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez.
The boxing event is presented by B96 and will be hosted by The J Show’s very own J Niice and Showbiz Shelly. If you get to the park early on Saturday B96 will be hosting a live tailgate event for all the fans. If you do not have you tickets you can purchase them here.
Once you get your tickets for the event then you can purchase parking with Park Jockey at the McClellan school here!
You can also receive $5.00 off by using the promo code BOX14.
