Rome:  the famously haphazard parking in the italina capital is set to become a thing of the past

The famously haphazard parking in Rome is set to become a thing of the past after the local police force set up a Twitter account for users to report traffic offences. Unlike a similar scheme in Bucharest which is meant to educate drivers, Rome police will prosecute based on evidence submitted via Twitter. The first social fines have been issued already. This is the best pic we found so far, see @PLRomaCapitale for more.
