BOSTON (CBS) — In Boston, the never-ending snow is turning neighbor against neighbor.
More than 5,600 complaints over snow removal have been filed in the city about people who have not done their due diligence when it comes to shoveling. There are complaints about neighbors, businesses and even the city for leaving roads and sidewalks snow-covered.
“I think everybody should do their part,” said one Boston resident who lives on a street with many unshoveled areas. “As you can see, it’s like a ski resort.”
As the city tries to tackle the six feet of snow that fell in a little more than two weeks, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has encouraged people to report snow removal offenders online through “Citizens Connect.” Many have included photos in their anonymous complaints.

Wow, Deja Vu. I was in the blizzard of '78. People would shovel out a spot for themselves and some asshole would wind up in it when they came home. There were some scuffles, for sure.

What the Hell is a "snow removal offender"...
I don't understand your Government sometimes.
How can you fine people for not shovelling snow from a sidewalk?
Surely that's a Government job?

We do that here too (I'm in Boston). We're also getting another blizzard Sat-Sun 12-18 more inches... LOL.
