SOUTH BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Last week's snowstorm is long over--but even though the 48-hour time limit for space savers has long passed, there are still many being used.
In South Boston, where space savers are a way of life, one man said people are still putting their savers to use.
"Good for them," one resident tells WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Ben Parker. "If they can hold their spot, then it's all better for them and they win, right?"
Legal use of space savers ended at 5 p.m. Sunday.
Usually, the city will send crews out to remove the odds and ends--from chairs to crates and everything in between.
But even though they aren't supposed to be in use, residents say stepping in to take a saved space is not always the prudent move.
"It gets emotional," one man said. "People really take it personal. After a long day of work, the last thing you want to do is be confrontational."
