A few news articles to keep you in the loop:
Self-driving cars have officially hit Boston streets. The initial testing is confined to 191-acre park in South Boston, but could expand to more complicated road patterns in other areas, also testing at night or in bad weather. Channel 5 Boston has video coverage of the self-driving car that hit the streets of Boston for the first time.
The start of the parking pilot that increased metered parking pricing in Back Bay and the Seaport has already yielded some results. The philosophy behind the pilot is to make street parking more expensive, so people will be less likely to use on-street spots for longer than they should, leading to spots being open more often. The Boston Globe has more on the infancy stage of the pilot.
