App Pays You to Spot Illegally Parked Cars
The app, called Spot Squad, will pay you to spot illegally parked cars; all from your smartphone. First, you take a photo of the car, choose from a list (seen above) the type of infraction that you're observing, and submit it. Then photo records your location, along with the offending vehicle's license plate number and sends all the information to the owner of the lot or the local law enforcement, if necessary. The parking enforcement will then issue a citation, or have the vehicle towed.
While it is still in the beginning stages, the app creators are hoping that eventually this system will be worked into the laws, allowing it to be directly involved in issuing citations. For now, however, it simply is a way to alert the proper authorities to the offense occurring. As the application continues to involve, they will also work out the kinks in how the user will get their portion of the fine paid. Eventually, the creators believe that the Spot Squad company will take a portion of the fine, which they will then distribute to the user.
With a vehicle like the Chevy Spark, you almost have to try to illegally park. With it's compact size, it fits easily into every space with room to spare! So check out our 2013 Chevy Spark Brochure, or stop by our Birch Run Area Chevrolet Dealership to test it's parallel parking ability for yourself!
