Chicago Dibs is a time honored tradition after a snowfall with Chicagoans. And the legend goes, if you dig a parking space out, you can call “dibs,” establishing your claim to that spot. Chicagoans will use just about anything to mark their space, some more comical than others. Chairs, buckets, tree planters, card tables, and some truly innovative relics will line neighborhood streets throughout the winter season. One unwritten mainstay of “Chicago Dibs,” known by all Chicagoans – Dibs expires after 48 hours.
In 2002, Mayor Richard M. Daley declared his support. “He believes that if you shovel out a parking place in a snowstorm, it’s only responsible of other neighbors to be considerate,” City Hall said. In his 2015 race, Mayor Rahm Emanuel followed Daley’s line, asserting that he believes in “sweat equity.”
