    The Philadelphia Streets Department ticketed a local Wendy's for shoveling snow into the street, and then tweeted a photo. (Published Tuesday, Mar 4, 2014)

    The Philadelphia Streets Department posted to Twitter yesterday warning residents "not to plow, shovel or place snow in travel lanes of any streets."

    Residents and businesses had been warned.

    Today, the Streets Department tweeted notice of a ticket issued along with a photo of a cleared sidewalk outside Wendy's at 11th and Walnut Streets. Wendy's was issued a $100 ticket for "shoveling snow into a travel lane," according to the Streets Department tweet.

    The photo of the sidewalk and the infraction was also posted to the department's Facebook page.

    The cleared sidewalk was a walker's delight, but the snow removal resulted in dangerous driving conditions. Can residents and businesses expect more 'photo shaming' from the city in the future? 

    NBC10 has reached out to Wendy's and the Streets Department for comment.
