Parking Development Strategy

Legislation

Legislation to adopt parking controls may need to be either introduced, replaced or amended at different levels, such as national and municipal. The necessary legislation includes laws, which are regulatory acts establishing the basic principles of parking that are passed through a parliamentary vote; national regulations, which are typically issued by Ministries and further develop the basic rules; and regulations or instructions of local territory importance, such as bylaws. Legislation may also be needed to grant powers to municipalities to appoint enforcement agencies or controlling offices.

If paid parking is to be introduced, the Traffic Law will require articles permitting the owner or administrator managing the roads to allow roads, or parts of roads, or areas, for short-term parking in defined hours of the day. Regulations can then identify or define the specific roads/areas as well as the tariffs that are set within the bounds of the Traffic Law.
