    Can your car be from Maryland and still have a parking permit, I thought that was a no no?

    "The vehicle registration requirement can be waived if you drive a company car (including a leased company car), or if you are in the military service."

    Did you cross-reference the info on the permit sticker with the license plate?

    Maybe its 67' feet in the air at 1607 Catharine St., blocking my Western light and view.

    I know the owner of this vehicle and like the other posters said, this is a federal government vehicle.

    That brings me to something i've been wondering. What if you don't own a car but rent one or lease, philly car share etc... can you get a parking permit to put in your car that you park near your home?
    Seems like you should be able to. It's only fair and better for the neighborhood not to have to own a car and park it all the time on the street.

    If you rent a vehicle you can get a 15 or 30 day temporary permit for any zone - $15/$30. My vehicle was in an accident and had to do this with my loaner.

    With a lease, as long as the registration is in your name and address, you are eligible for a RPP (Residential Parking Permit).

    Philly care share/zipcar - no, there are designated spots for these vehicles.

    The city really needs to evolve and realized car ownership is not the way of the future. Make it easier, not harder to use one when you need it.

    I had a roommate do this illegaly (not a federal or company car). He bought a permit from a guy to put in his NJ-plated car. It worked most of the time (in southeast Center City, South Philly), but over the course of a year he got one or two tickets for it. Why he didn't just register the car in PA, I have no idea..

    We don't own a car and must pay $7/day for one of the daily hang-tags when we rent a car. Just one of the many things that is going into our evaluation of the shifting value proposition of Philadelphia home-ownership.

    I'm not too sure about that. When I switched my (full) coverage from NJ to PA (Francisville address), the premium was pretty much flat.
