A crackdown on illegally parked cars in South Side Flats is expected to continue.
On Friday, 16 cars were towed, 55 parking tickets were issued, three moving violations were handed out and one person was charged with disorderly conduct during a second weekend of stepped up enforcement in the South Side Flats neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
Last weekend, the first for the crackdown, 84 cars were towed and 243 parking citations were issued on Friday and Saturday.
Pittsburgh police launched the crackdown because many people have long complained about illegal parking in the popular bar and entertainment neighborhood.
Police bureau spokeswoman Diane Richard said the police traffic division will continue with the illegal parking enforcement detail until further notice.
"PBP will evaluate the impact that this enforcement has made on this growing problem and adjust our strategy as needed in the South Side Flats community," Ms. Richard said.
