"We want parking your vehicle to be the least of your worries when you drive in the city to work, play or visit," the PPA noted on its blog. 

The workshop will be held on June 17 at the PPA headquarters at Seventh and Market streets from 10 a.m. to noon.

The authority's blog notes that the workshop is for four kinds of people – those who get parking tickets, are confused by parking signs, loathe parallel parking or just want to learn more about parking safely in the city.

Not unlike parking in Philadelphia, space is limited. Unlike parking in Philadelphia, the workshop is free.
