High Penalties for Illegal Parking On The Cards in Rijeka

Lauren Simmonds

Illegal parking and improperly stopping to pick up and drop off is about to become much more of a dangerous game in the City of Rijeka…

If you’ve spent any time in Croatia at all, particularly on the coast, you’ll have noticed that being able to park is a rare commodity, and when you do think you’ve finally found a parking place after driving around for twenty minutes, it’s either been taken by a previously unseen Smart car or by someone who has kindly decided to take up two spaces instead of one with his battered old Volvo with ten parking tickets stuck to the windshield.

This is just one of the ”charms” of summer on the Croatian coast, but it seems that the powers that be have finally had enough of poor parking skills, and a new scheme with heavy fines is coming into play, starting with Rijeka.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 21st of August, 2019, five cameras which will operate 24 hours per day will now be responsible for filming the parking situation in the City of Rijeka.

As of August the 15th in Rijeka, five brand new cameras will be playing the role of Big Brother and are ready and waiting to punish those responsible for illegal and improper parking and stopping in Rijeka’s city centre, and heavily.

Many people in Rijeka have long complained of improper parking and stopping to pick up and drop off, as bus stops and delivery venues are often crowded with cars, for which they’re of course not intended.

Rijeka’s five new 24-hour cameras will now take care of the parking situation in in Adamićeva, Fiumara, on the Riva and along Ulica Ivana Zajca instead of the communal officers. The cameras will work as a replacement for the communal officers who simply can’t even manage to deal with and properly sanction all perpetrators, reports HRT.

The cameras will record the offense, traffic officers will verify the offense, and the owner’s data will be obtained from MUP. A fine of 300 to 700 kuna will then be sent to the driver’s home address.
