Can't blame a citizen for trying, in this case a Brighton citizen who looked down today, saw a lack of snow and asked this lady to stop saving a space in front of her Hobart Street home:
She told me the spots were hers and anyone that parked there would regret it.
Meanwhile, across town, a roving UHub photographer captured the scene today on Victoria Street in Savin Hill:
And he has a suggestion for our new mayor - who grew up a couple blocks away:
Clearly some people value the idea of saving street spaces independent of any weather events. Maybe this is an unmet need the city should be serving? We could assign every street space in the city a number and have an auction to sell permits to park in each space. Think of all the revenue that could be brought in! Plus no more fights or slashed tires during blizzards. Obviously we would still need temporary permitting for moving trucks and such things, but I'm sure all the details could be worked out.
