T vehicle with a Boston parking ticket

Tom the roving UHub photographer spotted this official looking MBTA vehicle with a Boston parking ticket last night on High Street downtown. The T's operation center is right there, but it's on the other side of the street, so maybe that offended a ticket giver - or maybe the driver got the ticket somewhere else and left it in place as a badge of honor or an attempt to fend off further tickets (anybody know if that actually works?).

The Boston Licensing Board could decide Thursday whether Howl at the Moon on High Street shares any of the blame for the way one of its patrons wound up in Fort Point Channel, from which he managed to climb out shortly before police found him between the Congress Street and Moakley bridges, wet, shivering and clad only in his underwear and one sock - several hours after he was booted from the bar.

Update, 8/8: Licensing Board found club was not at fault.

Seems Boston has this nifty little search tool that lets you type in a car's license-plate number and see when it was last towed (and to where).

Over on Boston Reddit, mac_question has been using the tool to follow the exploits of a 2017 Fiat sports car (no, that's not an oxymoron), whose owner keeps parking it haphazardly at Summer and High streets downtown. In the past three months, the car has been towed five times from that spot. Maybe it's still cheaper than a deeded parking space?

He was found at Summer and High streets, shortly before 10:50 p.m.

Hazmat truck and a Dunkin' Donuts truck in downtown Boston

UPDATE, 11:54 a.m.: Truck still there, street still blocked.
