Parking Fines Big Earner for YCDC

The Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) has earned more than K11 million in fines from cars that illegally park overnight.

If a car parks overnight in a place that is not its legally designated parking space, the owner can be punished according to the Municipal Acts, with fines ranging from K50,000 to K100,000, according to YCDC.

“We continuously check overnight parking, but the Eastern District, South Dagon and North Dagon are not included due to low traffic in that area,” said U Zaw Min Hlaing, assistant head of the Management Department of YCDC.

Checking and warnings on overnight parking started in July in 33 townships within YCDC’s jurisdiction. Penalties for offenders started in August.

The penalty program started in three districts of Yangon – the Northern, Southern and Western districts.

Since then, a total of K11,025,000 in fines from 169 vehicles were collected as of last week, YCDC said.

In January, the authorities announced a rule that requires individual exporters of cars to have designated parking spaces supervised by the District Administration Office. After that, cars that park overnight outside their permitted parking spaces started getting fined by YCDC.
