An attorney in Center City is claiming that the Philadelphia Parking Authority has written thousands of invalid tickets. Now he’s fighting to get them thrown out in court.
Attorney Michael Coard was originally ticketed for parking in a bus zone. Now he’s suing the PPA, claiming that ticket and thousands of others like it are invalid. The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas ruled in his favor. Coard claims that over 70 percent of tickets issued by the parking authority between 2013 and 2014 were done so illegally.
That’s why he’s started an organization named P.H.I.L.L.Y.! or Philadelphians Hate Inquisitional Larcenous Losers, Yo! His ultimate goal is to abolish the Parking Authority altogether.
The Philadelphia Parking Authority did not respond to a request for comment.
