Have you tried reporting it? I would call the PPA enforcement line (215-683-9773) and also reporting it to 911. You can text 911 to do so - just have the location, make/model/color of the car, and license plate info if possible. They probably won't do anything the first day, but if it's there consistently and you keep bothering them daily, they might come out. I know it's ridiculous to have to do all that, but I've had some success in the past with it.

Yo. The PPA is much improved. Over the last like 3 months they’ve gone from not trying to really getting after people for stuff like this. If you call in a location the dispatcher will put it out on radio right away. They now see pedestrian safety as part of their mission. Call in everything.

I wish this were true. In my neighborhood it certainly is not. You can call in, sure, and they'll repeat the address back to you... and never send anyone.

PPD has to handle it if it’s on the sidewalk. At least when I reported something similar a year ago.

That's not necessarily the case, in my experience, at least not anymore. If it's an area the PPA patrols (meaning there's metered or permit parking on the street), they will enforce sidewalk/crosswalk blocking as well. If it's unzoned parking, though, that's the PPD. But, even that may not be totally true anymore with the recent push the PPA has had to enforce some of these issues.
