It took long to clean up the drunk cops from the side of the road than to clean up the spilled cases

There's no way that it could possibly take '7 hours' to clean up a spill of the nature reported. Gang-bangers on the west-side can empty a trailer in under 30 minutes.

Let's see...
Road construction on 90/290, 94, 294, along Sheridan Road and on most bridges heading up 294 to the Wisconsin border, then - this at the I55/294 interchange. There's simply no excuse for this gridlock.
Isn't it time that trucks {at least 18-wheelers} were banned for a radious of 25 miles around the city-center from 6:30am until 6:30pm?
I mean - give us {all of us who work for a living - unlike the idiots at IDOT}, a break!!!!

I hear ya' Maxey. A young guy, 27, with some experience sure but obviously not with the liquid weight the Beck's presented. Are trucker's licenses so easy enough to acquire to where drivers are unprepared for a weight shift on an exit ramp???
