Residents who own two or three or more vehicle are posing a problem for Monaco’s car parks, the Public Parking Service has said.

In order to deter residents from effectively reserving spaces by not moving their vehicles at least once a month, the Service has introduced a supplementary charge of 60 euros on top of the usual residential 106-euro fee.

The extra charge applies only to unreserved spaces.

The Service said that 400 vehicles were causing such a problem in January, and the figure is increasing each month.

The “rotation (of vehicles” is essential to offer a quality service to all users of public parking spaces,” the Service said on Friday, February 26.
