There is some very good benefits with free parking however it comes with its downsides as well.
You are able to come across a lot of free on-street parking mainly in the suburbs, although these parking spaces are usually outside people’s homes where Pay & Display haven’t been put in place yet.
There are a few issues with free parking. First of all it is a daily space race, people are waking up at all hours in the morning to secure a space but on arrival realising that their space has been snapped up. This is leaving drivers with no other option to fork out heaps of money on parking elsewhere.
The second issue is the security of their vehicle. It is becoming an everyday part of life that commuters are returning to their vehicle only to find that it has been damaged or marked and most of the time there is no security available to find the culprit.
On – Street parking
Limerick is one of the cheapest in the country when it comes to parking. Parking is available from 50c for 30 minutes or €1 an hour. Although with prices this low and maximum parking limits you are not always guaranteed spaces will be available.
Limerick County Council have put in place free parking on Sundays and overnight parking deals in off street car parks, they offer rates for as little as €5 per night.
Parking at or close to your work place is something that people working in the suburbs, industry facilities and schools take for granted, but it is extremely sought after by the work force in cities or larger towns.
Most companies only provided limited staff parking, however, they could be doing more. Spaces often lie idle because designated space holders are travelling with work, sick or on holidays. This results in up to 30% of spaces not being used at any given time.
