Clamped! GoCar fined despite free parking law

A picture from a TheJournal.ie reader shows the car parked in a pay-and-display section of the IFSC.

ON THE SECOND day of new bye-laws in Dublin to provide free parking for car share services in Dublin one TheJournal.ie reader has sent a picture of a clamped GoCar in the IFSC.

The picture clearly shows the car parked in a  pay-and-display section of the street which is supposed to be free of charge for GoCar users.

Users of the service already pay per hour for the use of the car while GoCar pays for the Dublin City parking as part of its permit to operate the service.

There are 30,000 pay-and-display spaces in Dublin and the new laws were introduced as a method to encourage car-sharing and reduce congestion.

Dublin Street Parking Service were contacted in relation to the new parking bye-laws but have not yet responded.
