Parking fees good to clean up streets

Dear Editor,

Your piece “Parking fees spark complaints” (June 8, 2010 )drew my attention. I applaud City Hall’s experiment. It is a step in the right direction in efforts to improve law and order on Phnom Penh’s streets. I regret that some people are affected by this measure, but they should be conscious that the space is for public, and not for personal use or business. The businesses and parking on the streets frequently create chaos and traffic jams.

I strongly wish this experiment succeeds and is replicated on every street of Phnom Penh. I would love to see our streets clear and clean for the benefits of the public as a whole, and especially when we would love to attract tourists to our capital city. And tourists like walking, don’t they?

At the same time it is imperative that City Hall creates more public parking spaces around city centres and business quarters to compensate the spaces lost.
