Philadelphia Parking Authority announced a new pilot regulation that scooters and motorcycles can once again park on the sidewalk in residential Philadelphia neighborhoods, at least for the next four months.
The new regulations resulted after hundreds were protesting last fall when the Parking Authority started enforcing the old no-sidewalk-parking rule.
Although, no sidewalk parking is allowed in center city, but Rick Dixon, PPA deputy director, stated it is allowed in residential areas.
He said that he believes that no conflict between motorcycles and scooters and pedestrians will arise in the residential areas.
Dixon mentioned that during the initial period that runs until October, no charges will be paid for parking in areas specially designated for two-wheeled vehicles. Based on PPA studies, demand is greatest so spaces can be provided accordingly.
