The top episodes from the new hit series showcases the hilarious highs and lows in the lives of meter maids.
They are the people we love to hate, and never before have they been so fascinating. You know they ve got you when you find a ticket tucked under your windshield, a yellow boot clinging to your car s wheel, or when you can t find your car at all.
Making drivers wheels spin is all in a day s work for the men and women of the Philadelphia Parking Authority from parking enforcers to tow truck drivers, the PPA crews are fearless and funny as they get the job done. Intense, humorous, and always emotional, PARKING WARS is an exclusive behind-the-scenes ride with the people of the parking authority as they manage the chaos of every driver s nightmare parking!
From square-offs with irate citizens to Greek Week mayhem and women who try to flirt their way out of fines, PARKING WARS: THE BEST OF SEASON ONE features the top eight episodes from this traffic-stopping, uproarious series.
"People don't like me 'cuz I write a lot of tickets," says a meter maid on the beat in episode three of Parking Wars, a series revolving around three departments comprising the Philadelphia Parking Authority. On this Best of Season One disc, we meet various PPA employees from the impound lot, the booting and towing division, and the ticketers describing to the camera how difficult it is for them to "do their jobs" while citizens curse and insult them. Meant as a comedic reality show, Parking Wars is funny at times when, for example in episode five, two ladies from Florida flirt with the impound lot cashier then turn against him when he refuses to give in. Like the Jerry Springer Show, Parking Wars is cast with real characters who seem oblivious to the workings of daily life. But ultimately, aggravation rather than sympathy may arise for Sherry in the booting department, Martin, the tow-truck driver, or Maria an impound lot officer as they justify perpetuating a bureaucracy that most urban citizens find mandarin and corrupt. The show's trope, to illustrate how furious average commuters get with these PPA employees, gets old quickly. Over the course of several episodes, one feels the strain that these employees endure. Though it is marginally interesting to learn the labels applied to law-breakers by the PPA, such as those "heavy hitters" who get towed instead of booted once they owe over $700, it is mostly irritating to see people getting city paychecks to sneak around issuing tickets. It seems an odd premise to make a television show highlighting what many people find extremely annoying. --Trinie Dalton

Rodney, Ponytail, Cheryl, Richie V, and all the other Parking enforcement officers are amazing at their jobs.
The 2nd have of the show is people whose cars have been impounded and they're trying to get them back. People have $1000 and upwards of $2500 in parking tickets and don't understand why their cars have been impounded. Some don't have registrations, insurance, drivers licenses, etc. and they yell, scream, curse, threaten and everything in between to the clerks trying to help them.
Towing & booting - HILLAREOUS! People jumping on the hoods of their car so it can't be towed. This one 20 yr old was so out of control they had to call the people. She was screaming (and I mean SCREAMING) at the top of her lungs the whole time. She got right in the towers face with spittle coming from her mouth, she grabbed the strap that secures the tires to the tow bar and broke it. She was a nut case with a capital N. Why? Because all residents of the complex must have a parking sticker on their windshield and she didn't have one. She thought that didn't matter because she's lived there for 5 years and there was no reason to tow her care - even though the apartment manager called the tow company.
If you want to laugh and be amazed at the absurdity of mankind mentality about parking this is a must see.
