A new controversial app would allow people to snap a picture of a parking violation and send the photo to police, private parking operators or city wardens. A police officer could then be dispatched to issue a ticket.  If a ticket resulted in a fine, under the plan, informants would get a cut deposited into their bank accounts or could direct the cash to their favorite charities. The SpotSquad app Co-founder Chris Johnson says he and his partners haven’t yet signed any agreements to give informants a percentage of any ticket fines, but he adds that some private parking lot operators are interested.
