Daily Talker: Fixing The Lack of Parking In South Boston

Parking seems to always be tough to come by in South Boston. During snowstorms, residents sometimes get into fights over cones, chairs or garbage cans used to save shoveled-out parking spaces. On weekends, out-of-towners pour into the neighborhood to visit friends.

Now Boston officials are preparing for a 90-day trial in part of the neighborhood, where resident-only overnight parking would be expanded to seven nights a week, according to the Boston Globe. Currently street parking is restricted to only residents from 6pm to 10pm, Monday through Thursday.
