Moscow to run paid only curb parking trial

Moscow is planning to run a paid curb side parking pilot program this fall. Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has just formally approved the plan which will go into effect starting November 1 this year. Parking on the designated roads will cost 50 rubles per hour
Moscow has long been plagued with too many cars and constant traffic jams. This program is part of a program to combat the currently chaotic parking that happens everywhere in the city centre. Twenty two streets have been designated as 'paid to park' as part of the experiment.
"The pilot paid parking project will be held from November 1, 2012 to February 28, 2013 in the limited areas of the traffic network," the administration source said.
The source also made note that while parking on these roads will be paid, marked emergency vehicles and disabled drivers will not have to pay. Disabled drivers will need to obtain the appropriate parking permit.
For residents who live along the paid parking roads, their vehicles will also be given permits to park overnight for free from 20.00 to 8.00. During the day, however, parking will remain paid.
In June of this year of Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced that from November 1 there would be paid parking only three streets, which has now turned into 22.
