The City of Cape Town’s Transport Directorate urges all residents to abide by the parking bay time restrictions in the CBD and to refrain from illegal parking. With less commuters frequenting the CBD during lockdown, most people started parking close to their work places. However, with the introduction of Alert Level 1, traffic within the CBD has increased. In overcoming the economic hardship brought on by the pandemic, businesses desperately need parking bays to be available throughout the day for use by their customers. As of 12 October 2020, the City’s Transport Enforcement unit will be monitoring the overstaying of allowable time permitted at on-street parking bays and the illegal use of exclusive-use bays for loading and for those that require a special needs permit.
