    Solons want free parking in malls, schools and hospitals - Auto News
    Representatives Rufus Rodriguez (2nd District, Cagayan De Oro City) and Maximo Rodriguez Jr. (Party-list, Abante Mindanao) have authored*House Bill 4298, which'seeks to prohibit the imposition of parking fees for the use of facilities provided by shopping malls, schools, hospitals, hotels and other similar establishments.'

    Under the bill, drivers who park at establishments can waive off the parking fees if they can present a receipt or validation indicating they spent money or patronized the establishment or a store therein from which they parked.

    Owners of establishments like malls and hotels, the congressmen said, take advantage of the volume of vehicle that need to be parked as people visit their malls or establishments by ‘charging them exorbitant parking fees despite the fact that these people park to patronize their institutions.’

    They point out that although some malls offer a fixed rate, other ‘big shopping centers’ charge P40 for the first three hours of parking and then an additional amount for every hour in excess, while hotels charge upwards of P100 unless the ticket is validated.

    Only if the driver cannot present a receipt or validation can the establishment charge up to P500 for the use of the parking facilities, the bill indicates.

    "There is a need for us to regulate the imposition of parking fees by all establishments, whether public or private, thereby making it free of charge if proven that the person has made a purchase or have availed of the services provided by said establishment, as evidenced by his receipt or the proper validation. Otherwise, the establishment can charge the consumer with high parking fees considering that he simply used the parking space without patronizing the establishment," Rodriguez said.

    If passed and signed by the president the bill notes that ‘any person or establishment, whether public or private, who violates the provisions of the act shall be fined with not less than P100,000 per customer that is charged a parking fee or imprisonment of not less than six months or both, upon the discretion of the court.’

    The two congressmen are also the same proponents of the*bill that seeks to impose higher registration for owners of multiple cars under one name.
    Ngayon pa lang may mga establishments na na pahirapan maghanap ng slot kahit mahal. Pano pa kaya pag ginawang libre?

    Although part ng batas eh ganun na nangyayari, like free parking if you bought the minimum amount.

    I think it's fair since there's a minimum spend to get free parking. Sa St Luke's there's a different rate for patients. I just presented my lab results when they charged me the regular rate.

    Nope. Not fair.

    A business has costs, and is built around the costs. And parking structures are also built around those costs.

    If this is parking on the sidewalk in front of the business, they may have a point. But if this is an open lot the business had to purchase (and, let's be brutally frank, any open lot left in Manila that's big enough to use as a parking lot is worth tens of millions of pesos) or worse, one that they had to build, then no... you cannot force them to provide the service for free.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    every square meter of land has to earn money

    kung pinilit ng gobyerno gawin libre ang parking tatayuan nalang ng building ang mga parking space

    May barkada ako gusto ko gayahin kasi hindi nagbabayad ng parking yun.

    Ang supermarket nya = puregold ang laki ng free parking. (kaya bumagsak sales ng sm supermarket dito sila talo ng puregold)

    Sa mall naman favorite nya robinson magnolia kasi side street ng mall pwede parada or kahit wag na dala kotse pwede nga lakarin medyo walking distance lang.


    -------------------

    Ako pumunta sa centris mall ng 9pm kasi bili ako milktea. Grabe yung sideparking may 30 pesos charge. So hindi na ako bumaba kotse pumunta na lang ako sa wilson street. Konti na lang idadagdag ko eh makakadalawa tie-guan-yin na ako. Sa parking kasi eh parang sa hangin napunta yung pera ko. Kaya goodbye centris.

    Kapal ng face centris mall. Mukha naman nilalangaw eh sumisingil pa ng parking.

    Greenhills nga pag 8pm pwede na magside parking doon sa paikot.

    why would a company spend all that money building a parking structure or acquiring an empty lot to let the public park for free
