In Russia, as we know, two misfortunes - fools and roads. Sometimes one trouble captures another so formed illegal parking. Unfortunately with parking in big cities there is complete chaos. In Russia there is still no law that would clearly regulate the municipal parking.
Before parking in Moscow was headed by the bandits. Then, city officials have long tried to find a way to relatively honest take money for parking, but in the end it never came up. Today in Moscow officially paid municipal parking lots almost none. Fortunately, there is no valet parking, which used to extort money from unsuspecting drivers. But a lot of illegal parking. In the city center already overburdened streets seize restaurants, cafes, clubs, shops and even different departments and ministries take under his own precious parking meters curb. You've probably seen in the center of the cones, ribbons, bars and metal barriers that prevent parking. Most motorists simply pass by without even thinking that you can move the barrier and quite legally leave this place where his car. We decided to look Dima Ternovskiy. In the next post we will teach you how to deal with illegal parking. Our ultimate goal - to clear the city from invaders, valet parking and free the road for ordinary motorists. In the meantime, I suggest to go with us in the first introductory raid on the streets of Moscow. After meeting at the monument to Yuri Dolgoruky, right in front of the City Hall of Moscow, I tried to find a place for their car. Machines here are in three rows, and the windows are phone numbers in case someone will have to go. At the same time Glavmosstroy guards put up iron bars, taking a dozen parking spaces. Without hesitation I decide to remove the column and put his car.
Security immediately stands up for the main weapon of the invaders - a metal bar. I ask the guards to show documents proving the legitimacy of the exposed fences. We say that they have leadership, but all are now engaged, and to us can not get out. Of course, no right to such a territory-wide capture Glavmosstroy have not. Protection of long talks about what it is their place of leadership, he Oleg Deripaska, the owner of "Basic Element", in whose composition includes Glavmosstroy, leave the car here. According to the security service, that person probably agreed about these places. But ns one law for all. "Contract" and pick up a part of the citywide parking impossible. After 5 minutes of disputes with the protection they give up and I leave my car at the site of Oleg Vladimirovich. The first victory, park - you can! With regard to legal and illegal parking. Under the parking rent a particular plot of land, but not "a piece of the street." This land should have a cadastral number. Land lease agreement for parking is made in writing by an authorized executive authority of Moscow. This park is to be entered in the Register of urban parks, which leads the Department of housing and communal services and improvement of the city of Moscow. The fact that many owners of cafes say they are currently rented out, is likely to mean that the land they rented a cafe, but not for parking. As an employee at the request of the driver's parking should show him the warrant, confirming entering a parking space in the Register, the driver who is going to park near the cafe, shall require the employees of a cafe, which prohibit parking to present registration documents. In case of failure to produce such a document, the driver has the right to apply to law enforcement agencies. This should be regarded as illegal parking, a parking device is unauthorized occupation of land, limited access to public land, the use of land without title documents. Next stop - the Federation Council. Parking sign denotes "a / m of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation." Often set in legal parking signs or plaques, that this or that parking "only for staff ..." depriving citizens of the right to park at a given location. All existing traffic signs and additional signs are listed in a special document - GOST R 52290-2004. Any other signs (signs) indicated Guests are not provided. Therefore, the driver has the right to ignore such signs. At a party I have found that there may be any exceptions for parking only certain machines.
We put the car on the free extreme place, just behind the sign 's Federation Council of the Russian Federation. " Immediately fit the employee FSO and asked to clean the machine. The base - this is the territory-secured area and in accordance with the law on the Federal Security Service, they have the right to restrict the presence of vehicles in such a place. Federal law on state protection, Article 15, paragraph 10: "The federal bodies of state protection for the implementation of state protection have the right to, if necessary, measures for temporary restriction or prohibition of movement of vehicles and pedestrians on streets and roads to prevent vehicles and citizens individual terrain and objects, as well as towing of vehicles; "Even though the sign itself does not meet the state standards, the requirements of the employee FSO absolutely legitimate and understandable. Same story with the General Prosecutor's Office, exhibitor fence along its buildings, occupying the roadway. The first defeat, impossible to park! The truth at SF nevertheless found a violation, the place for people with disabilities took the police. I am very pleased that we have started to work at the police station with disabilities. "Russia - a country of equal opportunities!»
After a hundred meters we find a great parking spot, forced guards. We leave and move them away. After standing for five minutes, and not wait until samoupravtsev. The message is clear - if you want to park, take and park!
We go further. Machinery standing in several rows, and suddenly a couple of empty seats at the front door of the establishment! It turned out that we got to the place of the head of the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications. Suitable policeman on duty in the street. It turns out that the legitimate rights of these places have no agency, on demand of a policeman chasing and he just asked us not to put the car here. - We can not clean? - You can, but I ask you to remove.
On the one hand it is a pity a police officer, and with another - why the other car owners do not have such privileges? Why are ministers, heads of federal agencies and other officials captured the street for their own personal parking? I am sure that when officials finally lose their privileges, they will remove the flashing lights and give up their parking lots, that's when we begin to deal with traffic jams and build municipal parking. And while they do not relate to the problems of ordinary motorists, that nobody and does not solve. Just around the corner - the Pushkin Theater. Under the stairs there are cars, and empty places - fences. Just slow down and have an unknown man cheerfully pushes the fence, offering to put the car. - How much is parking? - Yes then thanked. - A "thanked" - this is how much? - Yes, that is not a pity, then give. - 50 rubles normal? - Yes, as you want.
On the other side of the road is the traffic police. He says he is the same as that of our new acquaintance - is unknown. But there are barriers and "favorites" for parking cars.
And the valet carries with him most of his time. There is a very good example of the way the illegal parking. By law, you can not park here at all. But the traffic police did not bother it. What do you think, how much he pays quirky valet? And how this policeman puts his superiors? Good biznets they organized in the city center. But these bandits we will return in the next series.
Of course, these barriers are illegal, too. It is safe to remove them and put the car. But, nevertheless, the promised pay 50 rubles.
Pushkinskaya do a lot of mysterious zones. Here is one of them - who and on what basis has taken most of the pavement - is unknown.
After passing through the center of Moscow, you can see how the background of all these columns, cones and barriers have to park the rest of the movement. Forcing all the sidewalks and lawns, cars are put in three, and even four rows. And from next year in Moscow and St. Petersburg will be raised fines for parking similar to 3 000. Thanks to our MPs and the president signed the law, without giving citizens the opportunity to park without violations. A simple formula, "first parking lot, then the penalties!" Understood not all the authorities.
If the representatives of state structures aware that the building adjacent to their land they do not own, that private entrepreneurs are a lot bolder. Most often slow-witted guard explained that the exposed front of the restaurant fence is illegal - it is impossible. Often such parking occupy the entire sidewalk or roadway. Owners of establishments primarily care about their cars and visitors, and the rest of them do not care.
We did not manage to put the car in front of one of the restaurants. The issue could be solved by calling the police, but we decided to do it the next time.
The argument of the guard one: the director said to keep this place. We leave and try to get up at a certain private club, removing one of the plastic cones. A man with a strong emphasis explains that "if in the good", it is possible. "But even then, no one document is not in the parking lot, just in some places there are people with guns, you try to put it!" Such valet parking with their cones can safely send to hell. The building of the Federal Tax Service of Russia. The bars - along the entire facade. No signs no parking here for everyone, but the protection does not put the car. I have five minutes for fighting with the guard column. Almost by force, I removed the barrier illegal and Dima parked. The guard went for his superiors.
Left people ask for our documents, and receive a motivated opposition. They say about anti-terrorism measures, about the fact that for them there, ministers and heads of large non-stop coming and park them absolutely nowhere. "Now there is a discussion of the law on electronic document, you know what kind of people come here ?!" First, threatened that the car being evacuated and then allowed to leave for some time. The situation is a standard, high officials and the heads of ordinary citizens is more important than that romp through a few laps around the block to find a space. Luxury Travel Theater parking. But, alas, is to put the machine can only representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. History, in general, the same as with the Prosecutor General's Office and the Council of the Federation. The sign that parking is only for A / M MOE. Parkovska completely empty, but guards complained that if that happens, he will come here Shoigu and slaves should not be here, so as not to embarrass the gentleman.
The most "savvy" were the owners of "Tretyakov Plaza." They just put up along the roadway beautiful bikes. And then in their place and park their cars guests. The administration understands that there is no parking for the guests of their store on Nikolskaya Street can not be. But in war all means are good. From the point of view of the law it does here is something very difficult.
To deal with such grips harder, but still possible! As our road, park your car legally, you can almost everywhere really limited entry (CPT, barrier, security). All of these columns, cones and chains - unauthorized seizure of territory-wide. Quietly out of the car, and remove them to the side to put the car. In the case of a conflict situation - call the police. The situation with parking in the big city is really complicated. In Moscow, in the center is often simply no way to legally leave the car. Paid parking inside the Garden Ring can be counted on the fingers. As a result, the owners of offices, shops and restaurants in the center forced to capture part of the street car of its customers and employees. With these you can fight the invaders with the help of the police. But what to do with the ministries and other state institutions is not very clear. After all, officials blame that in Moscow there is a situation with traffic jams and parking. Why is the minister should have the dubious privilege, if the city and the country, there is no order? If you can not provide citizens with accessible parking, let derive all their offices outside Moscow and the park where they want. Moscow already too crowded. Part of the security threat of evacuation. Remember that threats to evacuate the car - just an attempt to scare the car owner. I called several emergency services, including the state, where I refused to help in the permutation of foreign cars from the parking lot of the restaurant. They can not move someone else's machine. This is possible only in the presence of traffic police, having at the base. So be sure that no one does not evacuate your car if it is parked by all the rules. Here fragments of conversations with the evacuation: Another part of the parking invaders threaten to pierce the wheel or scratch the car. Hardly anyone dares to realize the threat, but just in case you feel a controversial situation, turn the camera on your phone and say the protection that his threats recorded in the event of damage to your property it will be the first suspect. Also note the protection that you have a company car and it is safe, and if something happens, it will not deal with you and your employer with lawyers and insurance companies. In my experience, these measures are enough to cool the ardor of any high-handed guard. Our partners on the project "The country is not stupid," lawyers from "the National Legal Service" prepared comments on this topic. 1. What if the parking or a person without a badge preclude parking, blocking traffic cone or column (how to behave on the site, and where to call, as well as where then complain). To distinguish legal from illegal valet possible on a reflective vest bearing the current tariff and the special token with an individual number. In addition, the official parking attendants on demand driver must present the permits to operate the parking (color copy of the order with the hologram) and identity of the employee. If you randomly denied parking, refuse to explain the reasons and present a legislative act establishing such a ban, feel free to call the number 02, or the duty of the relevant police station. Attendant tell where you are, pose a problem, ask to send a police officer to remove illegal barriers to your rights. With the support of Moscow Police Company "Capital Parking» organized a telephone "hot line" (998-85-05), on which drivers will be able to complain about the illegal activities of valet parking or parking violations. 2. A separate issue - on the sidewalk or on the roadway, this park, is there a difference? Temporarily park it is possible in accordance with the traffic regulations and the driveway. But the Administration not to put cars on the roadway near the hotels, restaurants or clubs often illegal. The only thing that may prohibit parking on the carriageway of general use - is the appropriate road signs or markings. Parking on sidewalks is not allowed. But it can be fitted in an area immediately adjacent to the road and not intended for through traffic vehicles (yards, residential areas and so on. D.). Legal parking designated by appropriate signs and markings, is paved, lighting, fire-fighting equipment, special places for entry and exit of vehicles, special places for m / s disabled. It is not allowed Equipment parking structures, in particular, the barriers are not provided for by the relevant state standard. All city park in the territory of Moscow (paid, official, free) are entered in the Register of urban parking lots. The fact of entering a parking spot on the roster confirmed by the issuance of a warrant. Conducted by the Registry Department of Housing and Public Utilities and Public Works of Moscow. When transferring a city park in operation, a warrant is issued in triplicate.
