I was driving at an acceptable speed and hit a pothole in the street. My car broke down. Who is responsible for compensation?
– The Public Works Department is responsible for the damages caused to city inhabitants if the street is in an unacceptable condition for traffic. Vehicles may be damaged, but in the winter time slipping accidents are also common.
We have a parking space in our yard for which we pay a monthly fee. The space is clearly marked with a reserved –sign. Someone keeps continually parking in our space. What should we do?
– Parking Control monitors parking in public areas. The unit can also assist in parking problems in private areas. In this case, a representative of the property – the caretaker, chairman, caretaker or another representative of the property – should be present when the traffic warden arrives to issue the parking fine. In addition, a traffic sign for private property must be placed in each entrance to the property. You may contact the customer services, tel. (09) 310 39 000.
