Roving UHub photographer Ross Rotatori captured the signboard on the turnpike just before South Station this morning; hopes the next one has the rest of the alphabet.
Sometime between 3 and 3:50 a.m., the driver of this box truck thought it would be a good idea to get on Storrow Drive towards Leverett Circle. It wasn't, as Chuck Fitzpatrick shows us.
Jack DeManche discovered why the turnpike inbound was all clogged up in Allston, on a day when a lot of drivers were on vacation.
Kevin Brennan posts video of a storrowing outbound at the Kenmore/Fenway exits this morning in which the driver hit the overpass, tipped his truck over and spilled crap all over.
Special bonus: The city will no longer tow cars blocking street sweepers on streets with overnight sweeping. Instead, the owners of those cars will get $90 fines. People who park in no-parking zones on streets with daytime sweeping will get $40 fines - and might just have to pay even more, because towing of those cars will continue.
Apparently a bunch of parking fines are going up effective Monday (https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2018/07/01/boston-imposing-heftie...), which is fine and dandy as far as this car-free guy is concerned. But what I would really like to see is more attention to and enforcement of MOVING violations. To way too many drivers, yellow lights are just a challenge and red lights are a mere suggestion. It's bad, it's getting worse, and it's going to get someone killed.
Buttressing the assertion that little good happens after midnight in Jamaica Plain, we have this photo from the Boston Fire Department of a car flipped over on Brookley Road, off Forest Hills Street, around 4:45 a.m. BFD reports the driver, the only occupant of the car, was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries and that BPD is now investigating just how the car came to turn turtle.
Roving UHub photographer Mark Stephens reports the firetrucks were just pulling up after he took this photo on Rte. 128 southbound around 11:55 a.m.
Karyn Regal at WBZ News Radio photographed a box truck that became a bit lighter this morning after its driver disregarded those "CARS ONLY" signs in Allston.
Rick Macomber shows us the scene on the ramp from 128 north to the turnpike, where a tractor trailer rolled over before 5 a.m. and kept the ramp shut until around 8:15. State Police report the driver suffered minor injuries.
Same place, different truck in May.

Alex Kingsbury reports three cars parked on Washington Street near the Peters Park baseball diamond were hit by baseballs this morning, although only one of them will get the Giant Glass jingle stuck in your head.
Boston today gave a company experimenting with driverless cars permission to expand its testing from the Seaport to the entire city. Don't worry, at least during testing, you'll still have somebody to stare down behind the wheel: Read more.
Matthew McClocksey caught the action up from the O'Neill Tunnel southbound at South Station around 9:30 a.m.
Jack Sullivan also grabbed a photo.
