Snow etiquette

If you live in the city, you have probably seen people putting plastic chairs, cones and other place-holders in the street to hold onto the precious parking spaces they have spent hours of back-breaking labor digging out.

There’s no written rule against stealing someone else’s cleared spot, but when all the other spots are bordered by three-foot ice walls, it is definitely not the neighborly thing to do.

If you have witnessed some interesting space-saving attempts or confrontations in your city neighborhood, or if you have any other advice to offer on other areas of "snow etiquette," then send me an e-mail at ebattle@freelancestar.com or call me at 540/374-5413.

    Driving through downtown on Sunday, we saw lots of people who were shoveling out their cars and throwing the snow out into the freshly-plowed street. That’s just extremely selfish. The police should be allowed to ticket these folks for obstructing traffic.
