Harrisburg to step up law enforcement to raise money

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The City of Harrisburg will be enforcing some regulations that in the past had been ignored, and that may hit residents and visitors in the wallet.

City Council Vice President Eugenia Smith said it's a result of the city's financial situation, which will force them to start collecting fines for violations that are on the books but not enforced.

For example, if you get in an accident and need the 'Jaws of Life' to get you out of your car, it's going to cost you $500.

"There's always been a fee," Smith said. "We just increased it to $500 because it's comparable to our surrounding municipalities."

Smith says if insurance doesn't pay it, you have a year to come up with it on your own. City Council also improved increased fees for fire and police alarms.
