Steven Ayr could only marvel at what he saw on Victory Road at Houghton this morning:
24hrs after storm, someone shoveled out their car, dumped everything on the sidewalk, then put out a space saver. Either this person is a complete jerk or this is a political art installation commenting on the broken nature of Boston transit priorities.
Matthew Gilberti captured this charming South End scene this morning, reports three BPD cruisers, including the one pictured, drove by the snow-covered car without stopping its driver.
The Massachusetts Appeals Court today reversed a man's third OUI conviction for an incident in which a Revere police officer stopped him after watching get out of a traffic jam on American Legion Highway by pulling off the road and driving on the sidewalk for 200 feet. Read more.
There's probably a good story behind this photo that Craig Caplan took on Rte. 1 in Peabody at lunchtime today. Note the involvement of a white SUV, similar to the white SUV involved in that other notable recent incident that made all the papers and the national news (although granted, this is a Lexus; the other was an Infiniti).
We're referring, of course, to the guy who drove down the turnpike with the other guy on his hood. Hood guy faced a criminal charge as well. However, the third guy, the one who pulled out his gun at the end of it all, is OK, because he has a license to carry. NECN recounts the action and provides copies of court documents with the two initial guys' conflicting stories.
A concerned citizen files a 311 complaint about this possibly city-owned Prius in the South End whose driver doesn't think he needs to look out the rear window - and who doesn't seem to care what will happen later today when it warms up and all that ice comes flying off the car. Bonus:
Driver also did not utilize any indicator/blinker when changing lanes and making turns.
The city of Houston has created an adopt-a-storm-drain program in the hopes people will clear out their local drains. No money (or JP Licks gift certificates, obviously), but you get to name your drain. A reporter there has compiled a list of some of the names, and you just know the very first one on the list was by somebody who grew up in the Boston area.
Louisa LaSalle spotted this beta Masshole (an alpha wouldn't have bothered at all with the back window) at Comm. Ave. and Chestnut Hill Avenue in Brighton this morning.
Drew Starr could only stare in amazement at this person's parking job on Mass. Ave. near the Christian Science Center today: Too far from the curb, in a handicap space and with "a crushed bike lane marker underneath."
Alex C. captured two Lamborghinis and a Ferrari whose drivers figured the absolute best place on Boylston Street to stop and compare the size of their, um, wallets this afternoon would be the bus stop at Clarendon Street. He reports:
I told them they were in a bus stop right after they parked there, and they were like "whatever."
State Police report stopping this guy on the turnpike in Weston today, add:
Don't be that guy ...
In response to a 311 complaint about some Massholish parking on G Street in South Boston (person consistently parking "between a driveway and a handicap spot" and basically taking up two spaces with one car), the city says:
There is no violation for being a bad neighbor. Sorry.
