Citizens in DC Could Be Allowed To Give Other Citizens Tickets

The Washington D.C. city council may implement a pilot program that would allow citizens to issue parking tickets to those obstructing a bike lane, crosswalk, bus lane, or fire hydrant by using a mobile app. The Citizen Safety Pilot Program is included in a larger bill, called the Vision Zero Enhancement Omnibus Amendment Act of 2019, which was introduced to address transportation safety concerns after several cyclists and pedestrians recently died, WTOP reported. This section of the bill would allow up to 10 residents in each ward to be trained to use the app and issue the tickets.

  • Would you trust your neighbors to give out honest tickets or would it be a “Game of Thrones” type vengeance?
