How much will you be fined for parking offences?
While the non-payment fraud is estimated at 300 million euros of losses per year, the city council of Paris has made the decision to increase the rates of parking fines which today amount to at least 35 € since the 1st January of 2018.
Indeed, drivers that forget to pay for on street parking are subject to a fine of € 50 if they are parked in the center of Paris (from 1 to 11th district) and 35 € in peripheral districts (12th to 20th district).
In addition to these tariff developments, the introduction of radar cars equipped with cameras capable of automatically detecting vehicles that have not paid for their parking.
This system will significantly increase the number of fines issued in Paris because it is incredibly effective. Indeed, where a verbalizing agent controlled 200 vehicles per hour, this system will control nearly 1500 vehicles per hour.
