MOSCOW, June 9 (Itar-Tass) - Acting Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin did not rule out that residents of the Russian capital would be able to park their cars in the city centre at night free of charge.
As of June 1, 2013, Moscow introduced round the clock paid parking system.
“If we make the parking in the city centre free at night, residents will simply have no place to park. As our city lives round the clock - day and night - we will see how this will work, what space will remain free at daytime and at nighttime and what parking occupancy we will have and then we will make next step,” he said in an interview with Channel One on Sunday.
“It is quite possible that we will allow people to park at night as we allowed motorists to drive on bus lanes on weekends,” he said.
To resolve the problem of traffic jams in Moscow it is necessary to develop public transport and ensure order as concerns parking systems.
“The problem is not in pedestrians, it is in motorists, who found themselves in such a situation, when they park their cars in three rows along roads and simply cannot move,” Sobyanin said.
Last week Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin handed in his resignation to President Vladimir Putin, forcing the early election on September 8, which will likely return him to his position.
