Once I first posted in regards to the valet parking worth being set to LL 5,000, my solely fear was that the legislation won’t ever be enforced, however the very last thing I anticipated was for the Tourism Minister to comply with the valet firms’ phrases and increase the worth from 5,000 to 10,000 in sure areas of Beirut.
His argument is that the enterprise prices for firms working in downtown Beirut are too excessive and the they can not function with a 5,000 payment solely, which is full and utter B.S!
I’ve seen how these valet firms work, they’re breaking each site visitors legislation on the market and triple-parallel park their automobiles in unlawful spots. They take over all of the Parkmeter spots (and doubtless don’t even pay for them) and e-book parking spots illegally with their scooters.
What a joke this choice is!
