Parking dibs are nothing new in Chicago. But tensions over street parking have been running very high this winter due to the massive amounts of snow the city has been hit with. Some people have been busted for being just plain rude to their neighbors and leaving notes threatening bodily injury or property damage to anyone who steals "their" spot. Others have tried to ease the tensions by shoveling out their entire street making any and all dibs claims by their neighbors null and void. And some are just mocking the whole ordeal by putting bike racks and other fancy installations in parking spaces. Moral of the story: don't be a dick. Check out the Chicago Dibs Tumblr for more dibs ridiculousness in the city.
