Parking ticket for dad of injured Carnell student

Philly residents’ contentious relationship with the Parking Authority is no secret.

And it’s frequently the subject of Ronnie Polaneczky’s Daily News column, as it was yesterday when she documented the experience Kevin Mills had while dropping his daughter off at Carnell School in Oxford Circle.

Mills got a ticket last week when he parked in a school zone to drop his daughter off and help her get into school with her new crutches. The next day, he left a note on his windshield hoping for mercy from the PPA. No such luck.

“My daughter is on crutches. I’m taking her into school. Be back in a minute.”

Mills got another ticket, Polaneczky wrote another column, and it will all be sorted out in a hearing.
