So yesterday there was what looked like a big to-do at 4th and Catharine. A fire truck attempting to turn left on 4th to get to a fire location at 4th and Queen ran into the parked car on the south side of Catharine right at the corner. The car received several tickets, which surprised me since there were no signs forbidding parking in that location.
I did some digging and found the PA parking ordinances (http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/pdotforms.../chapter33.pdf) ... it would appear that in addition to the well-known 15-feet-from-a-fire-hydrant rule, it's illegal to park within 20 feet of a crosswalk and within 30 feet of a stop sign. I had no idea that law existed!
Gotta feel for the owner of the car who came out to find that not only was the front passenger side pretty badly damaged (it appeared mostly cosmetic, but the headlight was pretty well destroyed), but he got a few tickets as well!
Also does anybody know anything about the fire?
