Neighbor posts aggressive signs on 'dibs' chairs

February 6, 2014 (CHICAGO)

An ABC 7 Eyewitness News viewer sent in pictures of two signs attached to "dibs" chairs in Chicago's North Center neighborhood. "I will break your windows if I see your car in this spot," one sign reads. "To the punk coward who is too weak to put my chairs back," the other reads, "I didn't dig for you."

It has become a tradition for Chicago residents to dig out a parking spot and "dibs" them with chairs or other pieces of furniture. Frequent heavy snowfalls have forced residents who park on the street to dig more than usual in 2014.

The viewer, who asked not to be named, notified the police and their alderman, who promised to remove any "dibs" chairs on the street.
