The Boston Globe / Boston.com
Saving parking spots in South Boston, after the weekend blizzard, had people using ingenuity, but a fight broke out Sunday over a cleared space. By law, Boston residents are allowed to reserve parking spots they shoveled out after a snowstorm for 48 hours by placing an object on the pavement. But many South Boston residents have left out lawn chairs on spots for months.
