In the wake of recent violence in the city's Lakeview neighborhood, an overnight parking ban on weekends is now in place on some streets.

Last month, a mob of people attacked a 25-year-old man on Halsted near Buckingham. He was hospitalized for his injuries.

Now, a parking ban is in effect on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from midnight to 5 a.m. on Halsted Street between Belmont and Buckingham and on Belmont between Clark and Halsted.
