Here are 3 ways Sharjah will benefit from the new parking timings!

As announced by Sharjah Municipality, new parking timings will be applied starting from 1st April 2017.

Paid parking will now be running from 8am till 10pm.

Let’s face it, there will be no free afternoon parking but here are 3 reasons why it isn't such a bad idea!

1. Less Traffic!

Since drivers are not able to easily find a spot in the afternoon, they tend to stop along the way which blocks the traffic.

This will now be reduced since available parking spots will be increased! 

2. Easy Parking on Shopping Areas

Shoppers have a hard time finding a free spot in front of shops which also has a negative impact on shops since they have less customers.

Now it’s easier for shoppers to find a parking spot! 

3. Fair for Yearly Subscribers

Residents who are subscribed monthly or yearly to paid parking can’t park their cars in the afternoon since drivers use the free period to park.

There is a higher chance now for residents to get a parking spot!
