Yangon takes legal action against nearly 30,000 vehicles

The Yangon region government took legal action against nearly 30,000 vehicles which are parked on public roads for long periods, it is learnt.

As the number of cars in Yangon increased and parking became scarce, there were many quarrels over parking. Some companies and shops are taking up many of the parking spots on public roads, said a local living in Kyauktada township. Starting last month, the regional government took legal action against 29,007 vehicles which are being parked on public roads for a long time without any reason from 1 April, 2015 to May 2017.

According to 2013 municipal law, the owners of any vehicles parked on public roads for a long time without any reason shall be given a punishment of one-year imprisonment and a minimum fine of Ks10,000 and a maximum fine Ks0.5 million.
According to section 19 of the municipal law relating to roads and bridges, anyone who uses municipal property for car parking shall be given a major fine. Drivers continue to park in public areas for long periods in every township.
