With the impending snowstorm set to hit the northeast this weekend, the Philadelphia Police Department is using a Drake tune to help fight any potential parking spot battles that might occur between drivers. The department posted a video on their Facebook page covering the Toronto rapper’s smash hit “Hotline Bling,” with a meme of the Drizzy placing orange traffic cones down as he dances.
Their version of the song urges locals to “calls us on your cellphone, late night when you see that cone.” This is eluding to the fact that drivers often use orange cones, garbage cans and another items to save shoveled parking spots.
A snow storm is coming..and you know what that means. Soon, people everywhere will be using cones, lawn chairs, trashcans, uh, toilets, and any other household item that they can think of to save their shoveled-out parking spot. Folks – the spot isn't yours, and saving it is against the law. Don't fight and argue with your neighbors – if you see an offending spot saver, call 911 and the PPD will swing by and check it out.Oh! Since we are a totally hip police department, and as such, we know that the kids like the Drake, we made this neat video that you can share with them! Now, it's easy for young kids everywhere to get the message that when it comes to holding parking spots on public streets, Philadelphia is a #NoSavesies city!
