If you’ve been out and about in Boston this week, you may have run into a surprising number of 1920s-era cars. Thanks to the filming of Ben Affleck’s newest movie, Live By Night, these old-timey cars and trucks were spotted in the Back Bay and Southie.
But at least one South Boston resident either didn’t appreciate Affleck’s auspicious autos taking up precious parking real estate or couldn’t resist trolling the movie star: He or she used the city’s “Bos:311’’ app to lodge a complaint about the cars, The Boston Globe reports.
“Illegal Parking at 61 M St., South Boston,’’ the complaint says, which includes a photo of the offending vehicles.“Two vehicles without [resident permit parking].’’
For its part, the city didn’t stick Affleck with a ticket. “Case Closed. Case Noted. Resident parking goes into effect at 6 p.m. Will check area then,’’ the response says.
