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 seven episodes from this traffic-stopping, uproarious series.

It has happened to everyone--you return to your car to find a ticket tucked beneath the windshield, a yellow "boot" clinging to the wheel or, worst of all, no car at all! For most people, parking violations are a nuisance, but for cities, they are an important and jealously-guarded source of revenue.

From the often labyrinthine rules governing where and when motorists can park to the drama of parking court, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM chronicles every aspect of the day-to-day operations of the Philadelphia Parking Authority. Hit the streets with Frannie Esposito, a veteran ticketer who's been dodging angry drivers for 12 years. See what one woman will do to keep Steve Garfield and his booting partner Keith Hevener away from her tires. Meet tower Dave Sojourner, who is called every name in the book but still keeps a smile on his face. And get a behind-the-scenes look at antics in the parking court, car impound, and weekly car auctions.

Often intense and sometimes hilarious, PARKING WARS provides a fascinating glimpse into the workings of a much-maligned agency.
