Gillette Stadium neighbors can no longer charge fans for parking

The end of the road has come for a time-honored, but illegal, tradition in neighborhoods near Gillette Stadium in Foxborough where homeowners looking to make a quick buck have charged fans attending games and other large public events to park on their lawns and driveways.

On Monday, Town Meeting voters narrowly agreed by a count of 73 votes to 50 votes to discontinue the practice and charge a $100 fine per vehicle, per day for violators.
