If there was an app that might prevent you from getting towed, you’d probably use it, right? But one San Francisco Supervisor who’s says he’s trying to get such an app made claims other city agencies are standing in the way of just that.
As KCBS reports, Supervisor David Chiu has heard your
bitching cries, and has been pushing to get parking data from SFPD, SFDPW, and the SFMTA to create a smartphone app that alerts motorists when they’re parking in tow-away zones.
However, his attempts to get this data have been unsuccessful, leading him to introduce a resolution last week requiring the data to be released.
SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose tells KCBS that the data is being collected and that “After we pull information from multiple agencies around the city, we expect to release this information around the fall of this year.”
