In an area of Dublin’s CBD that is synonymous with car parking and shopping, it’s now becoming a place where many car shoppers are leaving their cars behind to shop.
With the city’s car parks limited, and the number of car-parked shops on the increase, some shops have started to move away from the traditional carpark and into the shops themselves.
It all started in the mid 1990s when the City of Dublin introduced a new parking requirement for residents to park at their properties.
This meant that many of the traditional cars in the area would have to be moved to the back of the street, and only the newest cars could park there.
The issue has not gone away entirely though.
Some shops are now turning to the street for parking and now many of them have moved into the street and into shops.
With these new stores and shops, some of the car park spaces are being turned into new parking spaces, and it is hoped this will bring more customers into the area.
However, some car owners have expressed their frustration with this and have started complaining to the gardaí about the problem.
In a report to the city council, a report from the Gardai said that, at present, there are only about 30 vehicles that can park at the car parks on the outskirts of the city centre.
“It’s been reported that many customers do not understand the difference between a car park and a garage and many have left their cars in their cars to go to the shops,” said the Gardaic report.
There are currently no plans to change the rules and this will affect the Gardasí.
It’s understood that some businesses are also unhappy with this.
“The issue is not that many people park at car parks in the street.
Rather, the problem is that there are too many cars parked in the car gardens on the edge of the parking area,” said Mr Ballysford.
He said there are a number of reasons for this.
Some of the shops have opened in the past, but the majority of the vehicles have remained in their car gardens.
Another problem that the gardai have identified is the number and size of the parked cars.
“This problem is exacerbated when there is no signage or signage posted to indicate that cars can park in the front of the shop,” said Gardai John Dolan.
Mr Dolan said there was an area in the middle of the area where there were about 50 parked cars and that was the only area where it was possible to see the signs.
He also said that the area has a lot of people coming in and out of the local shops, so this could be an issue.
“Some people are also in their vehicles for a number a times in a row, which is not allowed under the parking regulations.
In this case, there were no signs posted that said that vehicles can only park in front of this shop,” he said.
It was also pointed out that in some of these shops there are signs posted, but they are not clear on how they are to be read.
Mr Bally said that there had been no complaints received to the Gardáí, but he added that this was an issue that could be addressed by the council.
“I think there needs to be a better understanding between the shop and the Gardeins department.
That is what is being done here.
It is about getting the shop to be more visible,” he added.
