Residents Soon Might Be Able To Write Each Other Parking Tickets

Parking Fines

How would you like to be able to take a picture of someone's car who is parked illegally and provide them a ticket for it? That's what one local official wants down in Washington D.C. 

DC Council member Charles Allen’s new bill would give people the power to ticket illegally parked cars with a simple cell phone picture. When people see a vehicle that is blocking a bike lane, blocking the crosswalk, blocking a fire hydrant, they would have the ability using an app on their phone to be able to take a picture and actually have a ticket that will be issued. 

Allen says a measure like this is needed because a parking violation can pose a safety hazard for bikers and scooter riders, especially after the recent pedestrian deaths in the area. 

He hopes to have the bill passed in the fall.
