We could live in a city like this too. Check out the full story on Boston.com.
This month’s blizzard has brought a flurry of tickets, 173 yesterday alone, compared with 20 issued in all of December 2009. And officers are out today looking for more violators.
“If I find a violator, I’m going to write a ticket,” Tankle said Monday, as he patrolled South Boston in his truck. “I guarantee it.”
“I guarantee it.” Not, “Who me? That’s not my job!” No, “I guarantee it.”
The West Exchange Center on Federal Hill has cleared the sidewalks all around their buildings, but when it comes to their parking lots, the snow clearing turns decidedly auto-centric.
A path from the parking lot to the street, where employees arriving by car can then cross the street and go into their offices.
The sidewalks around the parking lot”¦ Well, I guess none of their employees walk to work”¦ BUT I DO!
Downcity tonight at Exchange Terrace and Francis Street pedestrians line up for a chance to climb through a tiny gap in the snow pile and get to the crosswalk.
I’m assuming the Yellow Jackets actually cleared this then a plow came along and pushed snow from the street back onto the sidewalk blocking the entrance to the sidewalk. Yellow Jackets have been all over the place clearing these situations.
Also, a reader reports:
Old people are walking in Street on Fruit Hill Ave trying to get to Stop and Shop on Manton. Very few sidewalks have been cleared as of 1:30 pm Dec. 29. Even St. Thomas Church has made no effort to clear sidewalk.
