Is It OK to Use Space Savers? - Hank

Like most people, I've done a lot of shoveling in the last week and a half. I live in Medford, the neighborhoods are fairly tight and there are more cars than parking spots. Someone parked in the spot I had shoveled out for my wife in front of my house and left their car there overnight. So....Pam had to park up on a snowbank at 11:30 at night. I was FURIOUS! I wanted to leave a nasty note, as I've done in the past, but Pam always says "We don't own the street"! I made note of the car, didn't put a space save out, but have watched like an eagle to make sure it doesn't happen again.


In East Boston, someone took revenge to the extreme and slashed all the tires on the rental car of a new resident, who moved from out of town. Listen to our discussion, below, and then click on the story about what happened to the tires of someone in East Boston, who parked in someone else's shoveled out spot!

Winter anger! Parking spaces and clearing off your car roof, is winter making us crazy? #WROR (No sound when we are playing music, sorry!)

'It's getting out of hand,' East Boston resident says after neighbor's car tires slashed over parking spot

As the snowbanks grow higher, so too does the fierce competition for parking spots along crowded neighborhood streets in Boston. Drivers found slashed tires and threatening notes in East and South Boston this weekend after a second snow storm dumped close to a foot of snow on the city.
