New Yorkers will not have to pay certain fines unless their violation is caught on camera if a new bill passes through the City Council.
Bronx Councilman James Vacca is pushing a measure that would require photographic proof of sanitation, health code, and some parking violations if a summons is written.
According to the legislation, if a driver gets ticketed for parking too close to a fire hydrant, or a homeowner is fined for not shoveling the sidewalk - the person issuing the summons would have to take a picture of the offense as well.
Vacca tells the Daily News the bill would help clear up any confusion over whether a person broke the law.
Staten Island Councilman Vincent Ignizio is pushing a separate bill that would equip some city inspectors with wearable cameras.
