We love Screwball’s crazy antics when he’s on the field at the Reading Fightin Phils stadium, but we’ve heard his parking needs a little work! Unfortunately, Screwball’s not the only bad parker in Reading. Our officers see some pretty off-the-wall parking when they’re on the streets, too. Just look at some of the Screwball Parkers we come across:
Reading, PA Code of Ordinances https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/readingpa/latest/reading_pa/0-0-0-22367
Parking ordinances begin with Chapter 576 (Vehicles and Traffic) Part 4 (Stopping and Parking)
This car is parked way too close to the corner at a yellow curb. AND it’s parked about 2 ½ feet out from the curb. Either of these violations makes it extremely hard for first responders to maneuver their rigs down the street during emergencies, and combined they’re an even bigger problem. Did you know RFD’s largest vehicle is approximately 47 feet long and 9 feet wide?
These parking violations could be a matter of life and death. So please…Don’t park like a Screwball!
BTW, the cone in these photos appears to be an innocent victim. However, no cones were injured in the taking of these photographs
