Take a look at this picture. typical block in Easton after a typical snowstorm. street is now clear, people can drive. can you spot the difference between the left and right?
the neighbors on the right got together to clean and shovel out their cars. they piled the snow on the side to make room for the cars. parking is enabled, even after 18" of snow fell.
the folks on the left, well, I guess they can't be bothered. maybe get a car out, who cares about the others. after a few days, those mountains of plowed snow will become hard ice pack until the temp is sustained well above freezing for awhile.
an already difficult parking situation is made all the more difficult by peoples selfishness and laziness.
