From a TV station in Orlando:
If you've ever been to the Social Security office in Orlando, you may be very familiar with the long lines and sometimes difficult-to-find parking spots.
An Orlando woman wants to get results after her car was towed last week after she says she couldn't find a place to park.
The overflow has created a problem for businesses close to the office, as well.
Angel Garcia says that a few weeks ago, an elderly woman visiting Social Security decided to park in the Polo Apartment complex-- a move that is clearly prohibited if you're not a resident.
The result, he said: About $20,000 in damages.
"She missed all of these trees. I don't know how but she came around from this direction and went right into the living room of that apartment there," said Garcia, a maintenance employee at the complex. ...
Marilyn Hernandez says the overflow of parking has become such a hindrance, the company has hired a towing company. ...
7-Eleven has a contract with a local tow company, as well. ...
We called and emailed the Social Security office.
Patti Patterson, regional communications director with the Social Security office, says that on average, about 700 people visit the center each day.
There are 169 parking spots including eight for the handicapped and public transportation is also available.
