Roads need to be clear enough so people can travel on them, which is why street parking is one of the worst uses of precious space.

The Pasig City Traffic and Parking Management Office has already declared certain streets as “No Parking” and “Tow Away” zones, but it has just announced that it will be strictly implementing wheelclamping on illegally parked cars starting on July 28. Also, there are other streets that allow parking, but only from 9pm to 6am on one side of the road.

A fine of P1,500 will be charged for the release of illegally parked vehicles. Those who tamper with the wheel lock will face a fine of P2,500 and/or one month of imprisonment.

The reality is that there simply isn’t enough space to accommodate all the cars in Metro Manila. If you do not have a regular parking spot, then we suggest using other forms of transportation such as walking, cycling, public transportation, or any combination of these.
