The Municipality of The Hague has let us know that starting today it is no longer allowed to park a car on the parking spaces allotted to Embassies. Until now the indication “Embassy” was a request not to park there. From now on it will cost you a € 90,- fine.
After urgent requests from the Embassies the Municipality hopes this measure will end the stream of complaints. And let us hope that the Embassies in their turn will set a good example and pay the considerable amount of fines that they have collected.
