As an alternative of controlling the valet corporations and fining those that are breaking the regulation (Most likely all of them), the Ministry of Inside & Tourism agreed in a joint assertion to repair the valet service worth at 5000 Lebanese Liras. Fixing the value sounds nice on paper nevertheless it won’t remedy something on the bottom.
What’s gonna occur when the valet asks for extra? Who’re you going to name? The Tourism Police? Does the Smoking Ban Regulation ring any bell right here? Nobody is ready to implement such a choice as a result of many of the valet corporations are nicely related and couldn’t give a rattling about over charging their prospects and even breaking the regulation. Simply drive round Solidere at evening throughout the weekend and see how valet guys double & triple parallel park their vehicles, minimize off folks, power you to park elsewhere even when it’s a public parking pot and even harass you if wanted.
Imposing such a regulation is a nightmare throughout the day and particularly at evening and can by no means work. As soon as once more the actual downside isn’t the value, however the truth that valet corporations are throughout. Solely inns, fancy locations and possibly marriage ceremony venues or venues that don’t have any parking plots round them ought to provide this service, in any other case valet needs to be forbidden. That’s what the Tourism & Inside Ministries needs to be engaged on: Organizing this entire valet mess and limiting the service to particular locations solely.
