Boston Snow Starts Parking Turf War

Boston’s neverending winter has brought out the worst of its residents. The city has already been hit with a record amount of snow and more is expected to come next week, which has left Bostonians rushing to save parking spots with lobster traps, stuffed bears, and anything else not bolted down. In turn, fellow residents have been “stealing” each other’s parking spots, which has led to violent retaliation, including slashing each other’s tires. “This is a criminal act of vandalism. This is not a quaint Boston custom gone awry,” Stephen Fox, the co-chairman of Boston’s the South End Forum, told The Boston Globe.
