    Warning to anyone tempted to snag a spot marked by a space saver.

    Last week, a Craigslist post told the story of one Boston resident, who felt his rights were violated when someone removed his space saver and took ‘his spot.’

    “So I put all the snow back,” the now deleted post read.

    The poster, who insisted on remaining anonymous for fear of retribution, told Boston.com he spent a significant amount of time shoveling the space, and placed an “old bookshelf” in it when he left February 8 to work an evening shift driving for Uber.

    He returned home “pretty late” Sunday night to find a car “with New York plates” parked in the spot.

    “I’ve lived in Boston for years and I’m from New England,” he said. “This was just not a cool move. I’m getting home at midnight and I had nowhere to park.”

    He spent Monday considering his options. Then, on Monday night, he shoveled all the snow back into the spot.

    “I got emails from people who said I should pop the tires. I didn’t think that was okay,” he said.

    Yeah I agree. I would've called a few buddies over (for some free beer) and it would've took that guy a week to get out of there. Or spring thaw.

    around here the town will take anything you place on the street to save a spot.
    & fine ya to.

    only thing you can save your spot with is your car.

    If it is not a snow emergency route.
    if it is, they will tow your car too


    of course I'm talking the small cities surrounding me.

    Where I live anything past your property line is fair game

    Humm, I thought it was public parking not private parking. Doesn't matter what mayor says, only what law says.

    yes it may be common courtesy not to jump in someones spot after they took the time to clean it out.
    but technically you pull out, it's fair game.


    only exception would be a private hanicap spot
