The decree, in force from Monday, November 23, until December 11, applies to all commercial P+Rs, parking garages and parking lots in residential areas. Operators must provide for use of the parking areas free of charge between 7 p.m. in the evening and 7 a.m. in the morning; however, motorists will be charged for vehicles left in garages and parking lots outside of that period.
A separate government resolution instructs ministers and local governments to open the parking lots of the institutions they oversee to the public, free of charge, between 7 p.m. in the evening and 7 a.m. in the morning.
