Why Daily News staffers hate the parking authority

    Why does the Daily News hate the Philadelphia Parking Authority? Let us count the ways.

    The People’s Paper released a top 10 list for reasons to hate the PPA, and even PPA supporters could probably admit to frustration over practices like:

    9. They encourage you to use credit cards at the kiosk, but the kiosks don’t always accept cards, and

    4. They park illegally while they write tickets on cars that are parked illegally.

    To be fair, Philebrity pointed out earlier this week that even the PPA isn’t above the law.

    The DN’s list was inspired by columnist Ronnie Polaneczky’s story on George Echenhofer, whose car was ticketed when he stopped to help a woman who’d been struck by another vehicle.
