Cop Hassles Wienermobile

Wienermobile Pwned

Bravo Chicago PD! It’s about time someone did something, because nobody wants to see Michigan Avenue become a slow-paced heaven for rubbernecking tourists.

Near noon today, an officer spotted the famed Oscar Mayer fiberglass sausage unattended with its hazards on, parked right at 400 N. Michigan Avenue. Red Line trolley drivers were unavailable for salty, furious comment. From Chicago Tribune:

A police officer approached the Chevrolet vehicle with the 27-foot fiberglass sausage and removable bun roof. The officer radioed for a tow truck.

Matt Smith of the city’s Streets and Sanitation department said the city could handle the job.

“We have access to tow trucks that could have handled a Polish sausage, not just a hot dog,” he said.

The officer wrote the ticket and affixed it with considerable relish to its foot-long side mirror. Ed Walsh, a spokesman for the city Department of Revenue, said parking in a “Parking/Standing Prohibited Anytime” zone is a $50 violation.
