TRAFFIC AIDE SHAKES DOWN DRIVERS AT O'HARE


Hughes, who is employed as a traffic aide with the Office of Emergency Management and Communications, has been relieved of his duties and has been placed on administrative leave, said Will Knight, office spokesman.

What a bonehead move. Hughes will not only lose his job but probably spend some time in jail. For $10? Nobody ever accused these traffic aides of being intellectually overqualified. They are a complete waste of money. They were organized to replace POs at ball games and major events. It was touted as a cost saving move. It actually turned into a huge bureaucracy of its own. They have more cars and SUVs than any other department. They even have ATVs! They stand around on corners doing nothing. When they do get out and direct traffic, they do a worse job than the traffic light. The whole TMA department should be scrapped.

  1. The department is necessary but they do hire from the bottom of the barrel.

    More accountability and training I say

  2. Maybe an aptitude test instead of bottom feeders?

  3. Another top heavy Department. All you need to get a job as a TMA is hand carry a letter from your Alderperson. To be a supervisor - you need 2 letters . . . .

  4. You know what TMA stands for? Too Much A$$ to be the police.

  5. They're a complete waste of funds. Tens of thousands of dollars each to stand on the corner in flocks.
