Tour guide Adam Selzer, a resident of the West Ridge neighborhood in Chicago, got sick of hunting for a parking space during the freezing winter polar vortex weather. This tiring search gave him the idea to freeze various pairs of jeans so that they stood upright to use as parking spot placeholders.
This funny way of calling dibs is not dissimilar to the endearing Pittsburgh tradition of using a chair to hold a spot, just a bit more unique.

Selzer spoke with CBS Chicago about his clever idea.
