Cities in the snow belt are activating their parking bans for winter. In Chicago they towed 215 cars on the first day of the ban. You can read all about it here.
Here’s my annual question: Where do people put the cars for the winter? Particularly in areas where there is a scarcity of parking. People complain, gripe, and blog about parking and the lack thereof, but when the snow flies, so, it seems, do the cars.
I know that some people have “winter cars” that they drive after Thanksgiving and put their fine wheels away but they still need to park those beaters somewhere. Do other spaces in garages and driveways magically appear when the temperature drops below freezing? The article about Chicago says that the law affects 107 miles of street. By my computation, that is about 25,000 spaces. Where do all those cars go?
Any answers out there?
