What I do not under stand is why besides making you feel like a criminal for something you were NOT aware of and all the tickets and court date (wich you have to pay for attending guilty or not) there is A $500 ticket to be payed ONLY in cash? But when asked all that was explained was "this ticket is not a traffic ticket so it wont go in your record" SO WE ARE BACK TO THE Q? I truly believe Oak Lawn police dept is a joke and with all that money being charged ridiculously they should at least get some clue and speach lessons! I was told as a child that "police are here to protect" not to steal and abuse!
