Pittsburgh forgives $14K of parking tickets

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The city of Pittsburgh has agreed to dismiss about 260 parking tickets totaling $14,000.

City officials say the tickets were issued Wednesday morning in a South Side neighborhood for cars that didn’t move for scheduled street sweeping.

But the street in question hadn’t been swept for months, and residents got out of the habit of moving their cars.

Officials say illegally parked vehicles in that area will get a warning this month, but will be ticketed next month.
