All week on the East Coast, we’ve been hearing warnings for a “nor’easter superstorm blizzard” that’s projected to be pretty serious (although, some of us have a bet going that it won’t be). Plenty of city police departments have warned their citizens to remove their cars from the streets in efforts to help faster snow removal after the storm.

In Philadelphia in particular, the residents often use traffic cones and other objects to save their parking spots from other greedy drivers after they’ve shoveled out their snow. It wasn’t until I sat down to write this article that I found out that this practice was illegal, because I’ve seen a bunch of people in Philly use cones, chairs, milk crates, boxes, trashcans and whatever else during the winter, so I thought every city did something like this!

Even still, the Philly Police Department (PPD) are warning residents to not use cones to save parking spots during this impending snowstorm. By warning residents, we mean police are serenading them using the catchy sounds of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” to spread their message.

Taking to Facebook to alert the masses, the PPD wants the world to know that Philly is a “#NoSavesies” city. “Folks – the spot isn’t yours, and saving it is against the law. Don’t fight and argue with your neighbors – if you see an offending spot saver, call 911 and the PPD will swing by and check it out,” the Facebook post reads. “We know that the kids like the Drake, so we made this neat video that you can share with them!” Gee, thanks!

We all know how slow the government is at getting with the times, so we’re going to excuse this extremely late “Hotline Bling” parody entry.

Obviously, you can’t talk about this topic without bringing up Meek Mill, and it’s just so crazy that Drake even has a hold on the police in his city, even while he’s home on probation.
