Unleash your inner illegal parking narc with new app

Unleash your inner illegal parking narc with new app - The Globe and Mail

Pretty much an app that allows you to take a picture of the parking violation and it sends it to the authorities or ticketing agency.
They are also considering giving a portion of ticket amount to the person who sent in the violation, sort of like a commission..

I can see this getting out of hand. What do you guys think?

Company website

I'd rather have the proceeds go to charities. If they allow people to make money off of this, you're going to get people that just drive around town hunting for them haha

Great idea for some things. Someone parked 2 feet past a sign? Shouldn't be a ticket. I see lots of people (assholes) pull into handicap spots when they're clearly not handicapped or don't have a handicap sign in their car. Those fuckers deserve a ticket.

And money should go somewhere useful, not the general city fund.

Look at it this way: if a lot of people start doing this, enforcement won't have TIME to deal with all of them... which means they SHOULD prioritize on the fuckers that really deserve it, over the ones that's it's a grey area.

Driving around all day for work, I see LOTS of asshole parking jobs - I would SO use this app!

Like this idiot:

A friend of mine - a WOMAN at that - has a truck that size, and has NO problem fitting it properly into a single parking space.

These trucks aren't too big, the drivers are just too lazy. Or assholes.

Or both.

The shitty drivers thread has tons of video and pictures of shitty drivers doing dangerous shit. The crown corporations won't take any as evidence nor act on it.

Government + Evidence = Not good enough.
Private + Evidence = Fat kid on cake!

I'm going to make 10 different identities so I can take 10 slightly different pictures of each illegal parking I see. I will be rich

I can see the authorities say you didn't take that picture first and then not pay you a portion of the ticket.

O'rly? I think my 5T's a bit bigger and I don't have a problem fitting in the lines.

Either learn to park or park farther away, simple.

Oh yea I am so down for this! But not for making money, just for getting these owners ticketed/towed. I live where street parking is scarce and I've seen FOBS parallel parking on the other side of the street facing the wrong direction, Ive also seen ppl parking in front of fire hydrants all ove rthe place

f450's are huge and wide, ive parked them in the lines before, you gotta be anorexic to get out of the doors if your parked beside another car.

but if your sending old photos, when the parking patrol guy gets there and theres no car there, you wont make money.

but your 5t is still taking up two spots.... does it really matter if the two spots are behind/infront or two spots beside each other?? im sure his truck can just as easily fit just like yours...and he probably would have as well if he could. probably just wasn't enough free stalls to do it. your truck may be longer, but whats more of a pet peeve/annoying, taking up two spots on an angle, or his truck in 1 spot with his tailgate sticking 2-3 feet into the stall behind him, only for someone to still complain about his parking...or to have his tailgate at the back of the line with his front end sticking into the lane? its a no win situation for that truck.

if it were me, im not parking down the street just so I don't offend someone. i'll park in the lot I shop at. if theres enough room for me to park, and enough room for other cars to park, then they can quit complaining. the only way I would EVER park outside of the designated lot, is if I was at Costco/superstore/metrotown when its an extremely busy time...Christmas..boxing day etc..times when I know parking like that would be inappropriate...THEN I would park further away/outside of the mall parking lot, or go with someone else so I can fit in 1 spot

There was a car behind me when I parked. Only reason I didn't park as far forward as the Mazda, was out of consideration, so anyone stopping at the sign could still see cross traffic without going past it.
