Park Ridge Cleans Up Ordinances, Makes Dirty Words Legal

Park Ridge City Council eliminates a law that made swearing in public illegal.

Residents of Park Ridge can now take their fingers off the censor button while in public.

The Park Ridge City Council eliminated a law that made it illegal "to use profanity in any street, alley or public place of the City," as reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

The law was removed as part of an effort to clean up city ordinances.
