• Pittsburgh parking authority probing suspicious tickets

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Parking Authority is dismissing three tickets issued by an enforcement officer who is being investigated for giving tickets to vehicles that might not have been parked at the time.

    Executive Director Dave Onorato said he can't identify the officer, but said she could face discipline and was in a place where she "shouldn't have been."

    “I don’t have an explanation for it. I don’t think it as a mixup. It was just something out there that shouldn’t have happened and we’re going to address it,” Onorato said.

    The investigation began after two people got letters saying they hadn't paid fines for parking tickets they never received. The letters claimed both cars were ticketed when parking meters expired after 5 p.m. July 19, even though both cars were parked several blocks away on that date and time.

    “After our investigating we found another one, so we’re going to dismiss all three (tickets),” Onorato said.
