City Parking has just circulated it’s new rates for traffic enforcement, and if luck is not on your side, geting clamped you will set you back US$30 + a US$10 prescribed penalty, that is if you are driving a light motor vehicle.
The company set up and owned by Harare City Council to manage street parking, parkades and car parks.
Commuter Omnibuses will have to to fork out a minimum of US$50 if they get clamped, that is a lot of money. You can check out the prices in flyer below.
Harare City Council some time ago reversed the old policy that the parking account should only be used to maintain and expand parking, which is how the two parkades were funded, and instead now uses the heavy daily cash-flow from parking to subsidise other spending. But City Parking can set its own pay scales and buy vehicles and other assets without getting council approval, since legally it is a private limited company.
