Naas motorists should have more free parking time

Naas

Motorists visiting Naas should be given a longer grace period without having to buy a parking ticket.

Normally vehicle owners have 15 minutes to buy a ticket - and there is a 15 minute grace period operating after a parking ticket expires.

This forms part of the parking rules operating in the town.

However this period was lengthened to 30 minutes with the onset of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Now, Cllr Evie Sammon wants the period extended to 45 minutes.

The issue will be raised at a Naas Municipal District meeting today.
