Linglestown Gazette: Life on the porch at St. Thomas Roasters

Life on the porch at St. Thomas Roasters

NY driver caught red-handed violating a local traffic law

A ripple of excitement spread among a few of the morning misfits on the porch at St. Thomas Roasters last week when a motorist from the Empire State did a very New Yorker thing – parked against the flow of traffic. You may not be aware that this vehicular maneuver is a big fat no-no in Lower Paxton Township.

This dastardly deed couldn't be left alone and suggestions on what to do started flowing like the Linglestown Blend coffee being dispensed inside Roasters. Calling the cops was dismissed, and no one could come up with a snide comment to hurl at the law-violating dude.

Then Todd Parlin, the hero of this story, said "watch this" and proceeded to inform the driver that he could get hit with a ticket for parking his car like they do in the Big Apple.

"I don't want to see you pay for the world's most expensive cup of brew," Parlin said.

The New Yorker thanked Parlin, scurried back to his car and drove off in search of a legal parking space.

This is why I like being of member of the morning java-junkies tribe – we're the kind of group that makes you darn proud to be a misfit.

I guess for once I can be proud of being called a "misfit"

I have often wondered whether it would be appropriate to call the police about people repeatedly parking in front of a fire hydrant on our street. They're not from out of state--they live there. It's different vehicles different times though, so at least sometimes it might be people visiting them.
