The Malibu City Council has just approved a plan for volunteers to issue parking tickets.

The group of about 10 volunteers now has the power to write citations for cars parked illegally at Paradise Cove, Zuma Beach and other popular locations, according to ABC News.

The volunteers are trained and registered with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. They're just writing warnings for now, but by mid-summer will be issuing real tickets.

The program is expected to bring in revenue to the city since no one is getting paid.
