New York City Bill Would Pay For Evidence Of Illegal Vehicle Idling


trafficNew York City, in an effort to cut down on carbon emissions, could allow concerned citizens to earn thousands of dollars by video-taping vehicles idling illegally, officials said on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

A bill to be proposed today would allow people to submit video evidence of idling to the city and pocket up to half of the fines imposed on rule-breakers, officials said.

The bill would continue to allow first-time offenders to receive warnings but would seek to raise the fines for illegal idling to a minimum of $350 from $220 and a maximum of $1,500 from $1,000 for second violations within two-year period. Third violations would be more. Read more here.
