The city of Scranton is deploying a new tool in the fight against parking scofflaws: Photography.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports that a car with roof-mounted cameras will help root out people who evade two-hour time limits by simply feeding the parking meters.
 
City Treasurer Christopher Boland says the cameras will take photos of license plates on parked cars. Any vehicle photographed in the same space after two hours has elapsed will be subject to a ticket _ even if the meter still has time.

Two-hour meter time limits are meant to create turnover. But enforcement over the years has been spotty.
