The ongoing reconstruction of the Avia heating pipeline has shown one fundamental thing. “There are a number of unused parking spaces in Letňany. Cars can be parked elsewhere than directly at the house,” offers councilor and deputy Jan Mikulecký other options. Where the excavation work was going on, the cars had to go away, but they had to park somewhere. Maybe it was 50 meters away and the drivers had to sacrifice to walk the few meters on foot. It is not so far from Ivančická to Nýdecká. However, for a lazy driver, it is much more convenient to park at an intersection or crossing.
There are also free spaces in the parking house in Místecká street. However, it is clear that not everyone can afford to pay CZK 800 per month. However, if a Porsche Cayenne is parked in the housing estate for CZK 3 million, it is surprising that its owner does not pay a few hundred for a safer parking space. It’s not just about money, but rather about the will of drivers, added representative Jan Mikulecký.
There is really a lack of parking spaces in some parts of the housing estate. Drivers try to park wherever they can, whether it’s legal or not. It is impossible to blame them for standing in places where they can hinder traffic a bit. However, they should not park in front of garage entrances or at pedestrian crossings. “Unfortunately, in Letňany we cannot tow cars standing on the grass or when they block the entrance to the garages or at the view of the intersection. These cases can only be dealt with by a fine, which is pointless because the drivers make excuses for a close person.
