Thoughtful Allstonian carefully marks his or her space saver

Amazon box marked as "space saver"

Captain's Blog ran across (but not over) this Amazon box in a shoveled space in Allston, thoughtfully marked so you wouldn't think it's just some trash out early.

You can get a space saver on amazon?

It might be the box the space saver came in.

Why don’t they treat snow plowing like street sweeping??

Bc it would take 5 days to clear the snow perhaps.

Because that would take like effort to plan it out.

It could work. Other cities do. Just prioritize streets and work around the clock. Montreal does it as does Calgary.

Yeah exactly. For some reason New England never figured it out

Cambridge does it on certain streets when the piles get really bad.

But they don't manage it well. First they put up these little signs that say "no parking until further notice", which nobody notices. For days or weeks people keep parking there. Then with no warning the city tows everyone. Then they spend all night going back and forth with a beeping front-end loader, shuttling the snow to a dump truck at the end of the block.

There are plenty of Youtube videos of Montreal's process. Clear signage posted in advance, then they make one pass with a snow blower truck paired with a dump truck.

I mean, come on, have we really forgotten about this gem?

(Turn sound all the way up, thank me later.)
