15-minute Parking Fines Go into Effect on June 17 北市限時機車格今起開單計時 逾時開罰

In 2019, Taipei City established 15-minute parking spaces around schools and government offices. Starting Friday, people that park in these spaces for over 15 minutes will be fined.


A parking enforcement officer writes a NT$0 fine. Outside the Neihu Administrative Center, there are no scooters parked by the roadside as all the spaces are 15-minute spaces.

Ms. Lee, Citizen: “I had some paperwork to file and I knew I wouldn't be out of there within 15 minutes. So, I wouldn't consider parking in a 15-minute space.”

Ms. Lee, Citizen: “It's a bit short. You never know how long it's going to be.”

There are currently 15-minute parking spaces for deliveries and other short-term stops at 24 locations in Taipei, including Taipei First Girls High School, Zhongshan Girls High School, Chengyuan High School, Taipei City Hall, Neihu District Office, Daan Precinct, Shilin Night Market and Gongguan Night Market. As drivers have been taking advantage of these spots, the city will start fining violators on the 17th. 

Yang Ta-ming, Planning Section Chief, Parking Mgmt. and Development Office, Taipei: “You get fined if the time expires. If you're in violation, you will face a fine of at least NT$600 under the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act.”

Both manual and technology enforcement will be used. Taipei has also launched paperless fines. From July 1 to Sept. 30, motorists that sign up for SMS notifications will get a discount on parking-related fees.

 

 

 

共享機車剛停下,收費員立刻開單,只不過是張0元繳費單;換個地點,內湖行政中心,機車佔滿洽公停車場,但路邊停車格不見一輛機車,原來這幾處機車格只能限停15分鐘。

民眾李小姐說:「我今天是來行政大樓辦事情,我知道我15分鐘之內一定不會離開,所以如果是我的話,我不會考慮去停這個15分鐘。」

民眾李小姐也認為:「好像有點短,會不知道辦事情要多久這樣。」

為了方便外送員,和民眾短暫洽公等需求,台北市府在學區的北一女、中山女高、成淵高中;政府機關的北市府、內湖區公所、大安分局,還有士林夜市、公館夜市等地方,全台北共24處規劃機車停車格「限停15分」,就怕民眾久佔。

今日開始,新措施上路,將以人工開單,紀錄停放時間,只要超時,依《道路交通管理處罰條例》,就可能吃上罰單。

台北市停管處企劃科科長楊遠明表示:「如果逾時就會被舉發,如果有違反的情形,可以依《道路交通管理處罰條例》,處600元以上的罰鍰。」

不只開單計時,還用科技執法加強取締,而北市府也推出「無紙化開單」,7月1日到9月底前,民眾只要上網綁定,把機車收費改為簡訊通知,停車費都可以享有優惠。
