Chicago: Worst city for parking your car

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The worst thing about parking your car is the time it takes to find a spot, and also the price you'll have to pay to sit in the spot for only a few hours.

NerdWallet conducted a study that looked at parking in cities all across the nation. Ten cities were ranked, and the study was based on high parking costs and high vehicle thefts.

Ranking number one is Chicago.

Parking fees in Chicago were dramatically increased in 2009. A person can spend $35 per day and $289 per month paying for a spot. The city also has 33.4% more stolen vehicles per individual than the national average.

If you receive a citation in Chicago, you have seven days to contest the ticket or pay the fine online.
