Street Cleaning

Doesn't the parking ban begin at midnight as the sweepers go overnight? I know I've seen them out and about in the wee hours of the morning.

Wasn't an MBTA Bus Driver arrested for trying to ram a van with meter maids after she was given a ticket? I'm sure the driver got her job back!
