What does the law say about funerals going through stop signs and also what about when the light on the highway changes when they are 1/2 way through the light? Are the second 1/2 to keep going or break up the procession?

Officer Ness--I understand the rule about truck traffic on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. Are passenger vehicles pulling covered trailers acceptable?
Thanks very much for your reply.
I recently received a $50 parking ticket from the City of Chicago for not having a front plate. I take issue with this only because I live in Michigan where they only require one plate (since the 1970s). I was only visiting Chicago and parked on a street in the Lakeview area. My car is registered in Michigan, I carry MI no-fault insurance, my plates are MI, my driver's license is MI, and my permanent address is in MI. I can't even get two plates in MI anymore. Can I really be ticketed for not complying with an Chicago municipal law?

Hello, Trooper Ness:
I got a ticket on Saturday for "not stopping long enough at a stop sign" - which implies that I had to have stopped, but that's not worth arguing about - it is what it is. The official violation is "Disobeyed Stop Sign". My questions are:
1.) The Cook County Sheriff's officer kept my license. I haven't had a ticket in nearly 16 years and was surprised he had to keep it. Did he have to keep it? It's my only form of photo I.D. and I'm worried about the length of time it's going to take to get back. I've read on some other postings that I shouldn't have had to surrender my license. Can you shed some light/offer advice on this?
2.) On the actual citation, along the left margin are a series of checkboxes for: "Bond Deposited". Nothing was checked. Should he have had to fill this out? This won't void the ticket, by any chance, would it?
Thanks for your time.
Today I was ticketed while driving my four passenger (4 doors) Tundra Pickup with Disabled plates, because it was a 'truck.'
I am permanently disabled and have driven down LSD for more than 10 years !!!
This is the first time I was issued a ticket for being a 'truck.'...
I bought the truck due to a cervical 'fusion' suffered in an accident which does not allow for enough neck flexation to be able to get into a normal automobile.
I am encredulous at the amount of pickups that drove by me while I was being 'written up,' even after I explained to the officer that the mere presence of disabled plates on this vehicle classified it as a 'passenger vehicle' but to no avail...
I am hoping to have this nulled given the circumstances...
