Parking meters do not take new coins

wheel-clampWILLEMSTAD - Curaçao Chronicle has already reported this news, but there are still problems with the downtown parking meters and many people are confronted with their cars being clamped. This was the case last Saturday where reporters of this news site have seen and heard many people complain about the situation. These parking meters do not take the new coins (one guilders).

The Parking Authorities Curaçao (PAC) does not take this problem into consideration and will clamp all those cares of which the parking time has expired.

There is another problem which we have tackled with the PAC. Some of these parking meters do not work. Users, especially tourists, do not know that if the parking meter close to their car is not working, they will have to go to another one to pay for their parking.

The new coin is the guilder with King Willem-Alexander on it. Make sure you have the old coins, with Queen Beatrix on them, to use for parking.
