Chicago City Sizes Democrat Mayor Johnson’s Motorcade SUVs for Unpaid Traffic Fines

0


The City of Chicago has ordered the seizure of two SUVs from the motorcade of the city’s Democratic Mayor, Brandon Johnson, following non-payment of traffic fines.

Mayor Johnson’s convoy of vehicles failed to pay fines for red light and speed camera infractions.

The total fines amounted to $2,130.

CWB Chicago reported that the SUVs chalked up 21 citations, with warnings within the past seven months since Johnson took office.

Mayor Brandon Johnson’s motorcade has now exceeded the total received by former mayors Rahm Emanuel, Lori Lightfoot, and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle during their four-year terms.

The traffic violations now highlight the mayor’s compliance with the city’s traffic laws.

The Gateway Pundit reported the detailing the situation on December 20, 2023, noted an increase from 855 owed for eleven violations reported in mid-October to 1,725 by the end of November. Currently, the rising amount stands at $2,130. From what CWBChicago has uncovered, only two of those tickets have been paid since Johnson’s inauguration as mayor.

Cwb Chicago reported:

Since November 30, the city has issued seizure orders against two of the four mayoral SUVs. Three seizure orders have been issued for one of the SUVs for non-payment of three-speed camera tickets.

The city issued three more seizure notices against another car for failing to pay two speeding tickets and a red light violation.

We’ve repeatedly asked the mayor’s office about his motorcade’s speeding and red light running habits. We’ve asked who’s supposed to pay the bills and when they will pay up. We’ve asked why the mayor needs to fly through school and park zones at more than 50 mph.

In a piece of old business, one ticket issued to the SUVs during former Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s term remains unpaid.

With penalties added, that bill has swelled to $244. We’re not including that in the fines and penalties accrued by Johnson.

The unpaid ticket issued to Lightfoot has not resulted in a seizure order.

When Rahm Emanuel’s red light and speeding tickets were revealed during his administration, the former Obama chief of staff paid the fines out of his own pocket.

He later transferred responsibility for payment to whichever Chicago police officer was driving at the time of the violation.

Needless to say, the number of citations issued to Emanuel’s cars dropped dramatically after his drivers became responsible for the bills.

Preckwinkle also promised that tickets issued to her county-operated SUVs would be paid after we raised the issue with her. We later discovered that her tickets were subsequently protested and frequently dismissed.
