8:45 PM, tons of cars still parked on Forest St., none of which have tickets, including many that haven't moved in weeks let alone 48 hours. That's around $2000 worth of easy revenue for the city (painting crosswalks, picking up litter) gone. If I parked in Boston during a "street sweeping" overnight parking ban, you better believe I'd get a ticket the second it started...

Very excellent points, Keith

In Boston on street sweeping day, you get a ticket and tow. Always. Never fails

The tow truck brigrade was on my street about 1:30 this morning taking cars away. Remember folks, it's a good size city. They can only cover one area at a time. I'm sure they have the city mapped out on a grid with a plan of attack set up.

There were a couple cars parked illegally near my house last night. Police came by around 8:30 PM and the owners then moved. Not sure if they got a ticket, probably given the chance to move in lieu of one...which seems like a fair policy.

Keith, I suspect that at least some of those cars on Forest Street last night belonged to people attending the Cape Ann Big Band Holiday Concert at Chevalier Theatre. Perhaps that is why they were not towed.
