“If anyone takes a video of a truck idling for longer than 3 minutes and uploads the video to this website, you’re gonna get 25% of the value of the ticket when it’s paid,” he explained.

“That’s pretty much making $90 in just three minutes, and apparently guys have made nearly $70,000 doing it.”

However, he warned people to be careful doing it as he claims people have been attacked by the drivers of the trucks they were filming.

As the video went viral, users flooded the comments with their thoughts on the side hustle.

“Most truck drivers don’t care these tickets are factored into the price of deliveries!” one user said.

While another user commented: “Let’s get the bike lane version of this going.”

“Some ppl in these comments need to get a job as a delivery driver cause I promise when you’re timed on these routes you’ll see why,” a third commented.

While it’s clear some might not be interested in trying out the new side hustle, there’s no doubt others are making a decent chunk of change doing it.
