PPA cracks down on vehicles blocking bus stops

Drive down any bus route in Philadelphia and you're likely to see car after car, delivery trucks, even police cars parked illegally parked in bus stops.

"That's definitely wrong." Ed Kipp, of the Frankford section, rides SEPTA often. He uses a cane to get around and says it makes it more difficult to get on the bus.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority says riders shouldn't have to step into the street. That's why the PPA and SEPTA are looking into ticketing people who block bus stops.

There are already forward-facing cameras on SEPTA's some 1,200 buses. Under the plan, drivers would just push a button and take a picture of the license plate.

Not all riders are onboard with the idea and there's very little parking in Philadelphia to begin with.
