Parking in Brussels Feb 19, 2009
Since I came to this wonderful city 3 years ago I think that me morale of parking has changed dramatically. Coming from Copenhagen where hunting down parked cars is a way for the municipalities to increase their always endangered funding of the budget deficit Brussels was a heaven on earth.
I the beginning I was almost in shock, I found that it was almost impossible to find a parking here but after adjusting fast to the system here it is actually quite easy. When you see cars parked in the centre of a roundabout or in second position and that nobody is really bother by it, it makes it much easier to follow the same principle. Nobody here gets really irritated when an obstacle appears they just wait and drive around. Even bigger blocks are not getting huge reactions.
Of cause you can get a fine and I guess all Brusselars are calculating on but it happens very seldom. I guess I qualified for a ticket last weekend because a very angry policeman was waiting for me when I was picking up some sushi. I was wrong in my doing no doubt; I had parked in a crossing for pedestrians and there were available parking spaces close by, but in 99 out 100 cases I would have had no remarks but I guess that the policeman had a bad day.
