Parking Space Hoggers to be Towed, Relocated Starting July 16

Handling of Vehicles Obstructing Traffic and Hogging Parking Spaces in Taipei City The Taipei City Parking Management and Development Office (PMDO) stated that since the Self-Government Ordinance for the Handling of Vehicles Obstructing Traffic and Hogging Parking Spaces in Taipei City (hereafter referred to as the Ordinance) was promulgated, notices have been posted on 40 vehicles hogging parking spaces on July 1 by the office.

On July 16, a total of 22 vehicles that had remained in the same parking spaces were towed and relocated.

So far, the longest parking space hogger has not moved from the parking space on Xining S. Rd. (next to Fuxing Elementary School) for over 5 months, accumulating overdue parking fees of more than NT$80,000. The overdue parking fee notices sent to the car owner via double registered post have not been responded to by the car owner, therefore the office has towed and relocated the parking space hogger as stipulated by the Ordinance. PMDO will determine the car owner and notify him to retrieve his car within 15 days of notice given, or the car will be put up for auction 3 months after a public announcement has been made.

Car owners are instructed to pay their overdue parking fees as soon as possible and remove their car from the parking space.

The agency will continue investigating parking space hoggers in order to free up more quality parking spaces for citizens.
