An camera based app which allows citizens to report parking infractions to the city.

The better Idea https://xkcd.com/562/

       Yeah, I like this kind of thing, but I figured out the fatal flaw in it a while back.   

       Often some clown does a terrible job of parking, and then a person or persons on either side of him are compelled to do some creative parking in order to compensate.   

       Then the clown comes back, gets in their car and drives away. Along come the next parker, and all they see is the victim(s) of the original parking job, but now they appear to be the offenders.   

       Hey, isn't there an old piece of slang called " nosy parker " ?   

       I love the linked approach ...
