Cash-strapped cities are turning citizens into surveillance-minded traffic and parking ticket vigilantes

Washington, D.C. plans to join a growing list of cash-strapped cities that turn citizens into ticket vigilantes. According to a Fox5 News article, Bill B23-0288 would allow 80 citizens, ten in each of D.C.'s eight wards to print out parking tickets and citations. These government shills will be tasked with spying on motorists and ticketing them if they park too long or violate parking rules. Reason.com warns, "these new citizen parking enforcers would be accountable to no one." If you think you had problems with your neighbor(s) before, just wait until they have the power to ticket anyone. Apparently, turning your neighbor into spies (See Something, Say Something) is not enough for our government. Because now they want to turn your neighbor into a ticket vigilante, whose sole purpose is to collect money from everyone.
