Uber and Lyft drivers are facing hefty fines for violating the no-stopping, no-standing regulation along North Michigan Avenue.
The law applies to all vehicles driving on the street, according to Chicago Police. However, ride-hailing drivers are specifically being ticketed because their apps so frequently tell them to drop off and pick up passengers in front of the many stores along the strip.
The purpose behind the no-stopping, no-standing law is to ease congestion in one of the busiest parts of the city.
