The Week in Parking

Watch: Drivers find out they’re parked in the most ticketed spot in Philly

And all Hell breaks loose over South Philly’s median parking debate

TFW you find out you just parked on the most-ticketed block in Philly

Last week’s Week in Parking revisited 2015 data that show the 500-block of South Second Street is the most dangerous spot to park in Philly, a.k.a. it’s the spot where you’re most likely to get a parking ticket.

That information is publicly available, and has been reported on, but we still wondered how many people knew. Spoiler alert: Just about none.

Meanwhile, tensions over South Philly parking rules have hit an all time high, with an activist suing the PPA over South Broad Street median parking

But Twitter users still found time to complain about everyday misadventures with the Philadelphia Parking Authority

Overall, not a great week for the PPA

Or for this person
