..or so declared our good mayor.
now you can park everywhere, except where it is not forbidden or where
you have to pay. there will be 15 paying zones, mainly around train stations and the big bus stops.
we all know these nice guys in the green vests, the parking wardens, who were ripping you off and if you refused you could end up with a scratch down your whole side or a flat tire..:9456:
but what i can't understand, why can't they get their act together put up parking meters like in the rest of most towns and cities. no one likes to pay of course, but the city needs money and it is just not fair that now people will just put their car in front of their shops or buildings all day long. and guests or visitors can take a long walk....:suspect:
i know, when i am in the center of moscow, no car. it takes ages first to get in or out anyway. and hunting for a parking space takes up more time than an actual meeting. :happymad:

Why do you think this is good news? It is terrible.

I was thinking exactly the same thing myself. It's bad enough now but the last thing Moscow needs is a free-for-all-park-wherever-you-feel-like-it policy.

Like there's anywhere to park anyway.

Quite.

So let's make it worse and encourage more cars into the centre.

Hitting drivers with a Congestion Surcharge would be a much better idea.

Indeed.
