At the same time, the Verkhovna Rada already two years can not pass a law about Parking.
“Until now, we have no right to evacuate the car, to write fines to the irresponsible drivers who leave the cars on the roadway or the sidewalk,“ protested Klitschko.
As an example he cited the experience of Germany and the United States whose residents leave their cars at Park and ride car parks, but do go to the city center by public transport.
Also capital Chapter believes that in Kiev it is necessary to cancel part of buses that carry fewer passengers than buses and trolleybuses, but place a load on the road.
In his opinion, one of the causes of traffic jams in Kiev also include a large amount of transit traffic.
“We have all the cities built in such a way that transport through the city, must pass through the center, creating an additional burden and a worsening environmental situation,“ said Klitschko, adding that this issue is resolved.
