    Must pay parking on Saturdays or not?

    Friend told me that ever since gomen declare 5 day week for public servants, we don't have to pay for public parking on Saturdays any more. Is this true?

    Or does the must must pay, except 1st and 3rd Saturday, still stand?

    tenkiu.

    I think the best is, to go to the parking machine and put in the coins. If it (the coin) goes in then you need to pay the parking fee. If not, then viola! u don't need to pay. It's safer this way rather than getting an unnecessary summon from the authorities...

    That's what I thought so, but then my friend who said that no need to pay parking on weekends anymore, also said that the parking meters haven't been calibrated/updated to not accept coins on weekends yet.

    so i dunno who is right, who is wrong hmmm...

    When a local authority wants to charge parking for a specific parking zone, it has to be gazetted where the public are informed of their intent by way of a notice board so theoritically what is put on notice for zone A can be different for zone B and irrespective of whatever changes come about, what was gazetted stands until they de-gazetted and re-gazetted a new notice. This also means that Zone A can also be charged differently from zone B and days chargeable also different...if the local authority wanted it that way. Conclusion when in doubt, do take time to read the notice board for the zone you plan to park.

    I may be wrong but from the way I look at it, Saturdays are still not public holiday. Sundays and official holidays for that state are and if an offical holiday falls on a Saturday then it can be termed as a public holiday.
