If you ever see a open spot on the streets of Chicago, during winter time, and it looks like this.
Don’t think you got lucky and park there.. You might end up with a broken windshield or worse yet, be beaten up with a baseball bat :-). And the cops won’t even sympathize with you, if you file a complaint. There is an unspoken rule in Chicago.. If a (wo)man spends time to shovel snow on the street and put their chair/basket/table/crap to mark their spot, they are entitled to it, until the snow melts! :-).
As Chris Tucker say’s in the movie Friday “Never come around here again..never, never,ever,ever,ever come around here again…can you do that?” :-).
