TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Effective August 1, eight districts in Taipei will prohibit
bicycles from being parked in paid parking lots for scooters, and violators will eventually be charged a towing fee.
Taipei City parking Management Project Manager Chen Kuan-lung (陳冠龍) said the following eight districts will ban bicycles from being parked in paid scooter parking areas: Xinyi Business District, Nanyang Special District, Neihu Technolgy Park, Taipei Main Station, Shilin Night Market, Ximen Business District, Guang Hua Business District, and Muzha Taipei Zoo.
Chen said in the past two months there have been a growing number of complaints by the public about bicycles taking up parking spots in paid scooter lots, with an average of 10 such reports per day. It was because the available spots in scooter parking lots in these eight areas are particularly scarce that they were selected for the August 1 ban, said Chen. [FULL STORY]
