The Week in Parking

The City of Philadelphia wants to toss the Broad Street median parking lawsuit

City solicitors say there isn’t enough evidence of injuries.

The City of Philadelphia says there aren’t enough examples of injuries to substantiate the lawsuit the 5th Square PAC filed to compel the Parking Authority and the police department to enforce media parking restrictions on South Broad Street.

PlanPhilly reports city solicitors want the suit thrown out and are seeking to prevent a refile, arguing the PPA and PPD should have discretion to spend time on “more pressing” matters.

The lawsuit, filed last month, says more traffic crashes happen on South Broad Street than North Broad, where there is no median parking. Listen to WHYY‘s report:
