Report illegally parked cars and earn £10
However, some people are massively against this.
The private car park enforcement firm CPM is offering £10 to users who submit a photo of a car and it’s number plate that is parked on private property through its i-Ticket app.
The new smartphone app is offering money to people willing to become amateur parking wardens.
The drivers will then be fined £60, which increases to £100 if it is not paid within two weeks.
The app is designed for small businesses to manage cars parking on their land. Once users download the app and create an account they are sent car park signs to display.
Some people think this is a fantastic idea and think it will encourage drivers to be more careful where they park. Personally, I think I would use it around my child’s school if it was rolled out further because there are so many parents who park in the most dangerous way and it’s just an accident waiting to happen.
Others think it’s a disgrace and think it will encourage the public to report petty parking errors for a quick buck.
Where do you stand on this? Would you download and make use of the app?
