Vehicles Occupying Parking Spaces While Violating Traffic Laws Will be Charged Parking Fees and Ticketed and Towed at the Same Time

[Kaohsiung News] The Transportation Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government stated that when vehicles or motorcycles occupy parking spaces (including the markings) in Kaohsiung’s on-street or off-street public parking lots, parking fees will be charged according to the rates and the number of spaces occupied. If Article 56 of the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act is violated at the same time, the vehicle will be subject to the penalty and be removed pursuant to the law.

Recently, some citizens file complaints about receiving a parking bill for occupying only a portion of the parking space and being ticketed and towed at the same time since their vehicle is identified by the police as occupying the traffic lane and impeding the passage of other people and vehicles. They believe that the police is double charging them (parking fee and penalty ticket) for the same act.

The Transportation Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government cited the Ministry of Justice and explained that citizens have the duty to pay a parking fee for using a parking space. Parking fee is an administrative fee, and it is different in nature from the fines for illegal parking, which are administrative penalties. Therefore, it is justifiable to impose both charges.

The Transportation Bureau emphasizes that regardless of how much space or time a vehicle occupies a parking space, parking fee will be charged according to the rates and the number of spaces occupied. Citizens are reminded not to park in places that hinder the passage of other people or vehicles, including traffic lanes or places where parking is prohibited for the purpose of evading parking bills. It will not only result in vehicles being ticketed and towed, but also impede the passage of other people and vehicles and increase the risk of traffic accidents.
