Many cities are banning the tradition of reserving shoveled parking spaces with space savers, or “dibs.” While many people feel that this is a better move for the community, there are some who don’t care for it. This has resulted in “street justice,” where tires are being slashed for parking in what would have once been considered a reserved spot.
These acts of vandalism have grown in cost, with innocent drivers being forced to pay hundreds of dollars to replace their tires. Neighbors are being asked to remove space savers if they are seen, but people also fear for their safety as well as for their cars.
So how can you park in a snow-free spot without risking the tires on your car?
To avoid this “street justice” problem, you can commit to shoveling out spots on a regular basis, but that requires a lot of time and effort. Besides, if it’s freezing out already, this can often seem like the worst case scenario.
What we recommend is that you can use ParqEx to rent a spot that is snow-free (possibly even covered or indoors) for a minimal fee. This helps out your community by keeping money local, but it also provides you with a safe, dry spot to leave your car. These spots are also often protected, either by security or a garage, so you can park without fear of “street justice” having its way with your vehicle.
You shouldn’t have to worry about the safety of your car. When you use ParqEx, you don’t have to.
