New York City, New York – Parqt, an app created by New York a development company, released an infographic this week that reveals the tremendous costs that the U.S. accrues from parking tickets yearly. Parqt is a social, crowd-sourced application that enables users to locate vacant or soon to be vacant spots nearby, all while earning rewards for checking in and out of parking spaces.
“We created this infographic to remind the public how much failed parking attempts puts major cities in a deficit; our app, Parqt, not only cuts down the ware on our environment, but decreases the amount of parking tickets issued,” says Onur Erikoglu, Co-Founder of Parqt LLC.
This infographic entitled, “Parking Tickets: What it Costs the U.S. Yearly” lists the top 5 largest cities in the country, and their various statistics such as the highest ticketed areas, largest total parking ticket fine totals in a year, and even some tips are mentioned for how to reduce your carbon dioxide emission, thus reducing our carbon footprint.
“With the rise in number of motorists climbing every day, we wanted to create awareness, as well as offer a solution to the depletion of our ozone and other environmental issues,” Erikoglu says.
“Parking Tickets: What it Costs the U.S. Yearly” is posted on various sites all over the web, and can be viewed on Appspire.me, a premier mobile app marketing agency.

Onur and Caglar Erikoglu, founders of Parqt LLC, were born and raised in Turkey, and moved to the USA between 2005 and 2007 to study engineering and economics. Their passion for the environment, and problem solving, drew them to come up with the idea for Parqt inspired by an energy reduction company that would pay customers to turn off their electricity during peak times. This concept is similar to Parqt in the means of using what everyone already does – setting up a meter reminder and using that data by rewarding them to share it with everyone – small changes in daily activity make a big impact. Onur and Caglar are strongly passionate about creating a community where each driver’s parking information is shared to decrease our carbon-footprint by incentivizing and not requiring any extra work on the driver’s behalf.
