Fo sho owo!
311 said the city will pay for it - I need to call a number and then they send you a form and then you mail it back and then they mail you back and then you send your "evidence" and the they think about it.....
I'll let you know if they ever pay up!
Hahahah don't hold your breath:)

sounds like a "cash for gold" scheme to me although i'm shocked that they even told you they would think about it.

Missy, as you're a smart gal, you know that this will be an uphill battle. But I encourage you to wage your war nonetheless! You'll need to file a police report first. And the form is also available online:

I could also foresee the need to file the damage claim with the Illinois Dept. of Transportation, since they have authority over I-94 and its maintenance.
