We bring you stories about abandoned lots, overflowing with trash, all the time. But the City of Philadelphia seems to be going after some smaller offenders.
Anne Marie Coughlin got a $50 citation for putting her trash out before 7 p.m.
She moved the cans around 4 p.m., and by 4:05 p.m. there was ticket stuck to her back door.
She argued the city went overboard, especially because she only moved the cans five feet.
"I was amazed that I would have a ticket for $50 for moving my trash cans a matter of a few feet three hours before the allotted time," Coughlin said.
Coughlin says she's a single mom and doesn't want to go into the dimly-lit alley after dark.
But the city is sticking to its guns and tells us that rules are rules.
