If you’re traveling along L Street this week, you may notice some changes. The City of Boston will be “daylighting” intersections along L. What does daylighting mean? It’s marking the street near crosswalk and restricting parking 20’ from intersection. This helps improve visibility for drivers and pedestrians. This will happen at every intersection without a traffic light.
Eventually bump outs will be constructed at the intersection with lights.

For several years its been the law that you can’t park 20 feet from an intersection. See law below:
DON’T PARK ON SIDEWALKS AND CROSSWALKS, OR BLOCK INTERSECTIONS
You can’t park vehicles — including motorcycles — on any part of the sidewalk or crosswalk on a Boston street. You can’t park a car within 20 feet of an intersection, unless it’s at a metered parking spot.
