For each confirmed violation of vehicle parking rules, you can earn about $ 44.
The New York City Council has drafted a regulation that will allow traffic police whistleblowers to receive 25% of the fine issued on their tips to parking violators. To do this, you will need to indicate the location of the violation and attach photos. The corresponding document is published on the website of the city's legal initiatives, its author is a member of the city council from Brooklyn Stephen Levin.
The draft regulation also provides for an increase in the fine for illegal parking from the current $ 115 to $ 175. Thus, whistleblowers will be able to count on a premium of $ 43.75 for every confirmed parking violation. The rest will go to the city budget.
The draft resolution is still under discussion. For its adoption it is necessary to obtain the approval of the majority of the members of the city council.
