PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Parking is a problem in Philadelphia -– maybe even most drivers’ pet peeves.
You feel good when you find a spot, but then see a fire hydrant -– or go back to double-check the sign to see if it’s really legal.
FOX 29’s Hank Flynn reports the Philadelphia Parking Authority (“The PPA don’t play!”) will be holding a workshop next month to try to teach us how to avoid parking tickets -- or getting towed.
On June 17 at 10am, they'll hold a workshop for people who get parking tickets, or find parking signs confusing, or have trouble parallel parking and so forth.
So what happens if you park a few inches beyond a sign? Will that get you a ticket or towed? Bring your questions if you’re accepted!
Hank’s take: It's better for the PPA to slow down, and stop ticketing and towing cars as a source of revenue. It's backward prioritizing and it's hurtful to plenty of good people every day.
