Boston Mayor's Space-Saving Ban Seeks to End War Over Shoveled Parking Spots
With more than 8 feet of snow accumulating across Boston since January, clogged city streets have made available parking spaces a hot commodity.
Those that have spent the time and energy shoveling a clean spot deserve to park in it, locals have argued.
Walsh's decision was a controversial one, stirring mixed emotions in the community and across social networks.
On Craigslist, one Bostonian bragged about his ultimate retaliation: putting the shoveled snow back in the spot, surrounding and burying the car that pilfered his space.
"I was nice enough to leave the passenger door accessible in case they needed to get in for an emergency," the anonymous Bostonian wrote.
As the war wages on between locals, Walsh asks that residents respect one another and be fair.
