Munich – It should come as no surprise that a missing parking disc can result in a fine.
The fact that you can still make other mistakes with the parking disc is currently being shown in Bavaria.
What many consumers may also not know: the parking disc has legal requirements.
If they are not complied with, there is also a risk of a fine.

The municipality is therefore now asking its citizens to dispose of the cardboard parking disc.
The city administration generously distributed the blue disc to its car-driving citizens.
