What's the deal with superheroes and collateral damage?

One of the major drawbacks of being a superhero is that superheroes generate a lot of collateral damage. When they invoke such damage who pays for it?

How come Spider-Man doesn't get charged with cleaning citations when he uses his webbing to propel himself around NYC or wherever he is?
How come Batman or Wolverine don't get charged with similar citations when they dig their claws into sides of buildings and walls and what-not?

Well...it's not real so it doesn't matter. But to answer the question, the only "logical" explaination I can think of would be that they re-invest taxes into helping repair and clean up the city. They can probably mainly make cuts to the law-enforcement division.There's also the free labor that you can get from the criminals that they capture which would help reduce those costs as well. As far as the citations, you have to know who they are in order to cit them. Since most super hero's identity are hidden, they wouldn't have that info...if they did, they probably wouldn't push the matter for risk of alienating them and running the risk of inflicting their wrath upon the city.
