PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Philadelphia city councilman wants to slash in half the amount of time that you can leave a Winnebago or other humongous recreational vehicles parked on a neighborhood street.

Now, though, First District Councilman Mark Squilla says the problem is still rampant:

“We have a lot more RV parking — truck parking — on the streets throughout the city of Philadelphia and they leave them there for months at a time.  And a lot of residents are starting to get fed up with that.  How long can they be on the street?”

So Squilla has introduced a bill that would cut the thirty day limit in half, so that RV owners must move their motorized homes after two weeks.

“To have them on there for thirty days at a time is just too long,” he says. “So we thought that by lowering that number down to 15 days, and by notifying them that they would have to move them, gives us a chance to actually use those spots for people who live in the community.”

Squilla’s bill will be debated in committee.

The fine for violators would remain at $300.
