Paris issued a regulation, which will result in a mandatory parking fee for trucks over 3.5 tonnes, reports Transport and Logistics France (TLF). The new rule is to enter into force on November 1, 2018. As the city councilors of Paris justify: the trucks take up a large area due to their dimensions.
Most governments rely heavily on revenue generated directly and indirectly by transportation. Everything from fuel taxes to parking fees, traffic violation fines, value-added taxes from vehicle purchases, subway and bus fares, and registration and licensing charges can provide critical revenue to maintain infrastructure, support public transit, and more.
