Rome government allows citizens to tweet parking infractions to the police

  • Corelogik


    The beginning of the trend of neighbor turning in neighbor has truly begun. Anyone else remember that last time “turning in your neighbor” was encouraged and lauded by the state?

      I mean, is it really that much different from calling in and reporting a violation?

      At the same time, I see what you’re getting at. With everyone equipped with camera phones 24/7, it’s kinda scary to think that everyone around you has the power to report and capture the evidence of you doing anything wrong at any given time. :/

        OK Glass, report this infraction so we have another reason to be called a “glasshole.”

    Haha, that’s awesome. I’d welcome this as I take my sweet ass time to park well in order to not interfere with others.

    As for more major crimes, no thanks. 911 is where they should focus.

    its even better since you can tweet fairly anonymously, just push enemies cars into illegal zones, tweet, get them towed, laugh at their misfortune

      How are you going to push a car that’s in park without doing damage to one or both vehicles or showing obvious signs that it was forcefully moved? Cars don’t roll in park/gear.

    I’m not seeing what this has to do with Android.

      Tweet from your android phone.

        So should Phandroid write about every news story involving Twitter?

        I can get sports scores on my Android phone. Should Phandroid start doing sports stories?

        I can get weather on my Android phone. Should Phandroid start including weather reports?
