Prepaid parking vouchers - parking fees

Four parking vouchers

If you stop or park a car in a chargeable short-term parking zone, you are required to pay a parking fee. One option of paying this parking fee is by filling in a prepaid parking voucher when parking your motor vehicle in the parking zone. If you park your car for up to 15 minutes only, you do not have to pay a parking fee, but still have to fill in a free of charge parking voucher (15 minute parking voucher).
