SDL Fes-parkings

A partnership has been announced by the city of Fez to manage the parking garages. Three bidders have submitted offers, with the city selecting the best one to manage the parking garages. These bids were based on financial requirements and the use of advanced technologies. Among these, SDL Fez will install an RFID and NFC system for the parking garages. The new parking management system is expected to be fully operational in the coming months.

The company has faced intense criticism since its launch in November. Some local residents have taken to the streets to protest the fees. Some even started a Facebook group called "Boycott Fes Parkings" with more than 29,000 members. The group organized a public protest in Place Florence on December 27, and it was attended by hundreds of citizens. The members of "Boycott Fes Parkings" are threatening to stop paying parking fees until the local authorities act. But it seems that Fez residents may have to deal with the unfair practices of Fes Parkings for years to come, as the contract between the city and the company is for 25 years.

TICPARC

A lack of TICPARC, or a standardized parking management system, has led some Moroccan cities to seek to create their own. These are usually created by specialized public bodies or private contractors. Some cities, such as Fez, have tried introducing this system to better regulate the parking industry. The hope is that these mechanisms will reduce disputes between parking professionals and citizens. Despite their flaws, the Fez experience was instructive for those interested in implementing such a program.

However, many people are not satisfied with the parking guards' aggressive behavior. Many complain of being asked to pay at every stop, and sometimes even while in the parked car. Another issue is the proliferation of illegal parking guards, who are unofficially charging wealthy car owners a few dirhams. To solve this issue, you can buy a yellow vest and park your car in a neighborhood that you feel will benefit from parking management.

VERROUILLAGE

In Morocco, collective councils and administrative proxies have responsibility for parking management. However, residents of some major cities, like Fez, have struggled to find places to park their cars without clashes with parking guards. A local Facebook group called "Boycott Fez Parkings" was formed to address these problems. This group's leader was forced to pay a parking fee in front of his home in Fez, and he took the initiative to start a petition calling for a change.

Social media groups in Morocco have been demanding that the Moroccan government step in. This unofficial industry has sprung up as the Moroccan middle class grows in Rabat. As a result, more families are buying cars. The rising middle class in Morocco is creating a problem for these unofficial parking guards. They charge car owners a few dirhams for the privilege of keeping their cars on their driveways.

TRANSITEC

With the increasing middle class in Rabat, Moroccans are buying more cars, and parking spaces are becoming scarce. This has resulted in an unregulated informal industry of parking guards who charge a few dirhams for each space from wealthy car owners. This system is intended to ensure that people are not harmed by the system and that the Moroccan government can focus on improving overall public health and well-being.

To improve urban mobility and reduce pollution in Fez, the government has tried introducing parking management systems in the city. The government can also hire private contractors to manage these services. In major cities like Marrakech and Fez, city councils have tried this system to regulate parking and limit disputes between professionals. Unfortunately, the experiment failed to meet its goals and the parking attendants' lawlessness is a major issue in the city.
