Inspired by the @north_end_stuck_trucks Instagram account, Shearer - and the anonymous owner of the account - travelled down some of the North End's narrowest streets and tightest corners.
The North End's Jessica Dello Russo adds:
Thumbing through the @north_end_stuck_trucks instagram, what stands out is that most of the "stuck" trucks would have room to maneuver if the City enforced Article IV, Section 1, Part 4 of the City of Boston Traffic Rules and Regulations which states:
No person shall stop, stand, or park a vehicle upon any street or way within twenty (20') feet of an intersecting way, except alleys.
Here are sixteen examples from the @north_end_stuck_trucks instagram of cars that are technically parked illegally - preventing another vehicle (truck) from maneuvering through intersections.
Of course, it's all fun and games until an emergency vehicle can't get through (Courtesy @north_end_stuck_trucks instagram)
