Say No To ‘Dibs’ Says Streets & Sanitation Commisioner
“Help your neighbors,” Streets and Sanitation Commissioner Charles Williams said during a news conference at the Office of Emergency Management and Communication Thursday according to DNA Info. “That would be my approach instead of dibs.”
Dibs or space saving is the time tested Chicago tradition of using lawn furniture or other household junk to save a street parking space after having dug it out after an exceedingly heavy snowfall.
Some residents who park on residential streets feel they are entitled to the spot after expending time and effort to shovel it out and don’t want someone else parking there.
Williams said at the press conference there are no plans to ticket anyone who engages in taking dibs.
He also said that all 287 snow plow trucks are on the streets removing snow on main arterial streets.
