Pileggi takes aim at Philadelphia Traffic Court

Everybody has a horror story to tell about Philadelphia Traffic Court.

Sen. Dominic Pileggi, R-9, of Chester, apparently has heard enough.

The senator now has the troubled court in his crosshairs. Already the target of an FBI raid, as well as a blistering report that concluded that ticket-fixing is rampant in the court. the senator is ready to shut it down.

Pileggi said he will introduce a two-bill package this legislative session to shut Philadelphia Traffic Court down.

The report blasted Traffic Court as holding “two tracks of justice - one for the connected and another for the unwitting general public.”

Pileggi wants to add a third track - that would take Philadelphia Traffic Court out of business.

Yep, that's one way to solve the problem.
