In Boston, not currently; but in recent weeks, there have been letters to
the editor of the Boston Globe exhorting Boston to adopt the 'don't block
the box' rules of New York City, to help keep traffic flowing
here. Lord knows we can use all the help we can get.

So, yes, I've seen it, but in a New York City context. Hopefully it will
get adopted here.
