One Out of Four Greensburg, PA Meters Inaccurate
Ongoing inspections have uncovered that one out of every four parking meters in Greensburg, Pennsylvania was inaccurate.

Greensburg, PA
Greensburg, Pennsylvania City Administrator Susan Trout admitted Tuesday that inspections had found one out of every four parking meters in the city were inaccurate. She said that all of the problem meters now been replaced or repaired but did not address whether those who received parking tickets from defective meters would be compensated.

"I've been told the percentage that didn't pass was normal," Trout explained to the Westmoreland County Tribune-Review.

In April a lawyer discovered that 40 of Pennsylvania's 67 counties illegally issuing parking citations with meters of unknown accuracy. This discovery sparked a scramble among the counties to have the Pennsylvania Bureau of Rides and Measures certify their parking meters as accurate. In May, the borough of Bellefonte found half of its meters were shortchanging motorists.
