Moscow motorists survived three large-scale seizures of the city with paid parking lots. When they grew to the limits of the Boulevard Ring, none of the townsfolk must have imagined the impending scope. With an interval of one year, it was proposed to pay for the stay of an iron horse within the boundaries of the Garden and Third Rings. This would stop: promised initially only as a measure for unloading the city center, paid parking has already gone beyond its borders.
However, the administration’s burning appetite could no longer be abated, and in 2015 the authorities began to implement a new approach - pinpoint expansion on the periphery of the metropolis. Of course, this time too, everything was filed with the wordings already known to motorists: “at the request of local residents” and “after a thorough analysis of the traffic situation”. Well, let's look at a couple of photos from the points of the introduction of paid parking. The first picture was taken before their work began, the second - after the same weekday of the week.Metro "Voikovskaya", Staropetrovsky passage. For gas stations, paid parking would even worsen life: lovers of money would seek refuge there. But this gas station was occupied by cars before the appearance of nearby parking meters.

From my observations, I made several conclusions.
Firstly, with the introduction of paid parking in the neighborhoods where office workers park, there really are fewer cars. This reduction cannot be called global, but the fact remains. True, not everyone notices one nuance. Some cars creep into the surrounding courtyards, crowding out the locals. The effect of the paid mode will be maximal only if the "come in large numbers" will not have a free alternative in walking distance. Otherwise, all patches of land will be clogged with cars, creating problems for everyone - pedestrians, drivers, utilities.Metro "Voikovskaya", Staropetrovsky passage. Paid mode did not save the street from chaotically and improperly standing cars. Metro "Voikovskaya", Staropetrovsky passage.

Secondly, I clearly became convinced of the delusional argument that a paid mode is introduced to streamline parking. By itself, it does not carry any regulatory function. Need to free the street from cars? Prohibit stopping and start tow trucks. Want to comply with the parking rules? Get a parkon or walking inspector along the street, and for extraordinary occasions keep tow trucks at the ready.
