|Subject:||10 Year Statute of Limitation on Parking Violations in Cities of the First Class|
|In the near future, I will reintroduce legislation that will create a 10-year statute of limitation on parking violations and red-light camera violations in the city of the first class.
The Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) does not currently have a statue of limitations on violations it enforces, including parking tickets and red-light camera violations.
It was brought to my attention that a resident of West Philadelphia, awakened one day to see a yellow boot on her car. This boot, placed on her silver Toyota, was the result of several unpaid parking tickets from her old car; dating back to 1993. To make matters worse, this Philadelphia resident claims she never received a notice. This is an issue that affects anyone who may live in, work in, or visit Philadelphia.
Too many Philadelphians are receiving unexpected fees, and experiencing vehicle “booting” for old unpaid parking tickets.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation. If you have questions about this legislation, please contact my Policy Director, Micah Mahjoubian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introduced as SB73
