PHILADELPHIA - If you regularly park your car in Philadelphia, chances are you're going to want to know when the street sweeper is coming around.

Officials say drivers who do not move their parked car when the sweeper comes by will be subject to a small fine. Philadelphia will start Phase 2 of its Mechanical Street Cleaning program on Monday, and it will run through early November.

The city's website said it used a "Liter Index" to pinpoint over a dozen neighborhoods that have the highest concentration of litter.

The Philadelphia Streets Department has started posting signs on impacted streets to alert motorists to move their vehicles during cleaning times.

Elon Musk's big plans for Twitter: What we know so far
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Tesla CEO Elon Musk has laid out some bold, if still vague, plans for transforming Twitter into a place of "maximum fun" once he buys the social media platform for $44 billion and takes it private.But enacting what at the moment are little more than a mix of vague principles and technical details could be considerably more complicated than he suggests.Here's what might happen if Musk follows through on his ideas about free speech, fighting spam and opening up the "black box" of artificial intelligence tools that amplify social media trends.Musk's feistiest priority -- but also the one with the vaguest roadmap -- is to make Twitter a "politically neutral" digital town square for the world's discourse that allows as much free speech as each country's laws allow. He's acknowledged that his plans to reshape Twitter could anger the political left and mostly please the right. He hasn't specified exactly what he'll do about former President Donald Trump's permanently banned account or other right-wing leaders whose tweets have run afoul of the company's restrictions against hate speech, violent threats or harmful misinformation. A rancher is offering 100 acres of free land to Elon Musk if he moves the Twitter headquarters from California to Schwertner, Texas.DOWNLOAD: FOX 7 AUSTIN NEWS APPShould Musk go this direction, it could mean bringing back not only Trump, but "many, many others that were removed as a result of QAnon conspiracies, targeted harassment of journalists and activists, and of course all of the accounts that were removed after Jan.

Poll: Philadelphians are more pessimistic than they have been in over a decade
PHILADELPHIA - A new poll from the Pew Research Center found that Philadelphia residents are the most pessimistic they have been in over a decade. Researchers found that 63% of people polled believe that Philadelphia is on the wrong track, with gun violence receiving the lion's share of the blame. According to the latest data from the Philadelphia Police Department, there have been 127 homicides in the city this year which outpaces a historically bloody 2021. "A lot of evidence that crime has gone up, and it makes people very frustrated, very scared, and very at a loss of what to do about it," Attorney and CEO of Advocate To Win Heather Hansen said.U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams stopped by Good Day Philadelphia to discuss the ‘All Hands on Deck’ initiative that focused local, state, and federal law enforcement efforts on stopping gun violence.She believes that the COVID-19 pandemic secluded people from societal norms of behaving with courtesy, as evident by a violence spike in hospitals and airplanes. "It’s in large part because we’ve forgotten how to be patient, how to wait, how to interact in public," Hansen said.Philadelphians exhausted and frightened by the constant threat of violence, drugs and other street crimes would like to see more police, according to the poll. "I’m just concerned," said Jeff Benson, who has a daughter that lives in Philadelphia.
