Expedite the Investigation of Lincoln Towing

This petition had 1,891 supporters

In February, 2016, the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) launched an investigation into nearly 180 separate complaints against Protective Parking Services (aka "Lincoln Towing") regarding allegations of illegal towing practices, auto theft, harassment of patrons and even allegations of violence/threats from Lincoln Towing drivers. NEARLY 2 YEARS LATER, THE INVESTIGATION SHOWS VERY LITTLE PROGRESS. Since the investigation began, hundreds more complaints have been filed.

Regular updates on the ICC website show transcripts of hearings that are brief, unproductive, and accomplish very little to advance the investigation. Furthermore, hearings are often delayed or canceled altogether. As of today, the ICC docket does not even show another hearing scheduled. Although such investigations may be complicated in their execution, the public deserves a far more swift arc to justice. The pacing of this investigation and hearings are completely unacceptable. An editorial in the November 10, 2017, edition of the Chicago Tribune concurs with this assertion.

This petition respectfully requests that the Illinois Commerce Commission, Administrative Law Judge Kirkland-Montaque, Governor Bruce Rauner, and Gubernatorial candidates Chris Kennedy and JB Pritzker assist the citizens of Illinois who allege to be victims of Lincoln Towing's practices.
