They play rough out in Chicago. A cousin of mine once lived there and told me a story.
Neighbor had a habit of letting his neighbors dig their cars out, then parking in the dug-out space rather than dig out his own. Technically legal but a poor way to treat your neighbors.
After being asked yet AGAIN to stop doing this he blasted his neighbors and dared them to do something about it. They did, that night they build a cofferdam around the car and dumped in a ton of slush which froze solid overnight.
Car didn't move until Spring, by which point two windows had imploded under the weight of the ice. Neighbor raised holy hell but couldn't prove who did it. With no proof Police declined to get involved...
Not e-hell approved but something to ponder on...
They do the same thing in Boston (I lived in the Hyde Park section for years) dig out a space then put an old piece of furniture in it to mark it as owned. Every once in a while the police make a thing about it not being allowed and remove the furniture but it doesn't last long.
Yeah it's pretty common across the northeast. Same thing happens here in Baltimore and in DC
It happens here in Philadelphia too. Made even worse by the fact that we live in rowhomes, so the plot of land for each house is 20 feet wide. So every person has less than two car lengths of parking space. Often, people will have multiple cars. I once got reamed out by a man (for parking in front of my own house!) because we were making his poor mother walk because he couldn't park there. Snarky wanted to ask him "Oh, is her mobility limited since her stroke?" And when the likely "No, she hasn't had a stroke, what are you talking about?", Snarky could come back with "Oh. Ever since mine, walking has been very uncomfortable. Toodles!"
But Snarky has been finding chewing through the ball gag more and more difficult.
