Vision Zero Proposal Includes Citizen Parking Enforcement
"A new pilot program that’s part of an overhaul of transportation safety in D.C. would let some residents issue parking tickets on their own," according to an article by Keara Dowd.
"The Citizen Safety Enforcement Pilot Program is part of a larger 'Vision Zero' omnibus bill introduced by Ward 6 Councilman Charles Allen last week," and touted as a major step forward for local Vision Zero actions.
Councilmember Allen is also quoted in this article talking about the kinds of infractions citizens would be able to report via mobile app, including blocking a bike lane, blocking a crosswalk, and blocking a fire hydrant.
