Allow overnight parking in street if weather is nice
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we took a trip to my daughter’s home in Swampscott, Mass., a suburb of Boston. My daughter and son-in-law have three cars and it was often a problem for me to park, since they have a driving ban and there is no street parking this time of the year.
However, this year a new law was put into effect. If there is no snow on the ground and no snow in the forecast, you can park in the streets overnight without getting a ticket. Why can’t the towns and villages in this area do the same? It could be 80 degrees with clear skies and if you park during the ban, you will get a ticket. Are we that strapped for money?
