Petition to Suspend Business License of Lincoln Towing

This petition had 3,355 supporters

Lincoln Towing Company, located at 4882 N. Clark Street in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, has operated for decades under increasing allegations of illegal removal of the cars of private citizens from their own property, as well as from private properties where Lincoln Towing is not authorized to operate. As recently as February 1, 2016, the company is accused of removing a car from its owners parking lot and fabricating that the car was parked behind a different building.

Additionally, Lincoln Towing's drivers have been cited by the Chicago Police Department for unsafe driving, and several citizens in neighboring areas have witnessed the company's trucks speeding down side streets, running through stop signs with cars in tow. The company is now subject to a mounting class action suit for its alleged illegal activities.

Given the insurmountable evidence, Lincoln Towing Company is a clear and dangerous nuisance to the Uptown Neighborhood as well as the other surrounding neighborhoods that have been victimized by its alleged practices of theft, fraud and safety endangerment. The citizens, visitors and consumers of the City of Chicago hereby petition Alderman Ameya Pawar (47th Ward) and the Chicago City Council to immediately suspend Lincoln Towing's business license until a satisfactory operational audit clears it of all allegations and it is found to be operating with acceptable standards, practices and ethics. The city's residents should benefit from the local businesses, not live in fear of illegal, costly, and dangerous predatory tactics.
