A new project in The Hague offers residents free lot parking rather than on-street parking. The freed-up street space is still for use by residents’, albeit with a different purpose. Citizens willing to forego on-street parking may turn their space into whatever they like. The project is being tested on six streets in the council’s westerly suburb of Segbroek and will run for six months. Particularly surprisingly given The Netherlands’ reputation for green transport, the project has been met with vociferous complaints. The leader of the scheme reminds residents that it is voluntary. The goal of the project is to critically examine the world’s reliance on cars while encouraging use of public transport.
