Amanda happened upon this Cambridge space-saver note-on-a-stick tonight that was obviously in response to an earlier note posted on a car parked in a space.
Whilst Ubering about town, roving UHub photographer Frank K. spotted this Public Works pickup full from a de-space-savering run through South Boston today.
The city also replied to this complaint about a space-saver-laden Princeton Street in East Boston with a cheery:
Space savers on Princeton St were reported to Public Works and they were out collecting this morning. Thank you.
We're going to hope the Allston baby this belongs to has aged out of it, because thinking a parent would rip it away from a tot is just too horrible to imagine, especially a parent who clearly couldn't actually be bothered to clear out the space first. Zef spotted it on Comm. Ave. this morning.
WCVB reports a dozen cars were damaged last night by voracious potholes on Rte. 1A.
A newcomer to Boston, unfamiliar with our quaint ways, found this note on her car after parking in a space designated for visitors in South Boston on Monday.
In East Boston, though, they dispense with the pleasantries and just slash the tires right away.
A vexed citizen files a 311 complaint about a driveway and sidewalk on East 6 Street:
Please clean your condo it's bad enough all your cars are registered in New Hampshire so respect my town.
The tire-eating pothole is inbound just past the Kenmore ramp, so might be time to seek one of those alternate routes.
3 p.m., more or less, is when roads all over the city went to hell - especially the ones with hills. Washington Street from Roslindale Square to the Dedham line became a skating rink. A bus slid into a car at Beechland Street.
Columbus Avenue from Egleston Square north turned similarly impenetrable. A salt truck got stuck at Bragdon - its supply of salt gone.
Nick the roving UHub photographer came on this scene between the Jamaicaway and Jamaica Pond near Pond Street around 6:30 a.m.; says the minivan had been there for 30 to 60 minutes.
Robert Alvarez spotted this on Bolster Street in Jamaica Plain today.
And you know what that means: Yep, residents can save their shoveled out spaces until 8 a.m. on Sunday - except in the South End, where space savers are banned, banned, banned. Also, parking will be OK on snow-emergency routes at 8:01 a.m.
Around 3 p.m. on the northbound side. State Police report the bridge is now open again.
Katherine Bragg is among the drivers not going anywhere on I-93 north due to a truck turned sideways in the tunnel.
BPD has posted the list of streets where parking is banned today (for your own safety, so enthusiastic fans don't jump on your car roof or roll your car over, natch) and the streets that will just be shut completely at 9 p.m.
