Dar es Salaam implements new parking rules to curb traffic congestion

Published on: 30 January 2014

Dar es Salaam city council has implemented substantial fines against parking infractions in the central business district, reports the AA Tanzania. As a result of increasing congestion, the new rules include, charging motorists for illegal parking, cancelling contracts with tow companies that were not complying with the regulations and collecting fines from motorists.

The city council’s director announced that all parking permits given by the municipalities have been cancelled. New parking permits that are in harmonisation with the new procedures and the regulations will be issued. Moreover, the new regulations impose restrictions for trucks carrying more than 3.5 tons and have prohibited ‘bodaboda’ motorcycles from entering the city centre.

The city council recommends that all drivers should comply with the rules and regulations to guarantee better use of parking places and clear city centre congestion.

This initiative is intended to tackle the previously weak enforcement of parking regulations in the city of Dar es Salaam. Illegal parking has been an important contributor to problems in mobility and unnecessary chaos.
