    A recent noise study objectively determined that one of the occasional auto racing events in the parking lot of Hoffman Estates’ Sears Centre Arena wasn’t dangerous to the hearing of anyone there or of neighbors living just across the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway.

  • Pyke: Highway bridge protests exercise free speech, but irk drivers Aug 18, 2014 5:05 AM
    Fuming in gridlock caused by protestors atop a bridge over the tollway? It's perfectly legal, police say. And it's constitutional, says Fred Schneider whose political protest signs have irked more than a few motorists. "If you give a thumbs up, we give one. If you give us a finger, we wave to you," he said.
