The white and blue parking disc must not be set to the exact arrival time, as the ADAC informs about a slight mistake.

A parking disc is easy to use, no question about it.

But be careful: The

white-blue parking disc*

must not be set to the exact

arrival time

, as the ADAC informs about a slight mistake.

How do you set the parking disc correctly?

"It will be set to the next half hour after arrival," it said on ADAC.

en.

Using an example, the experts explained it quite simply as follows: "

If the car is parked at 4.05 p.m., the driver must set the parking disc to 4.30 p.m.

." Anything else is wrong and could result in a

fine

.

"The parking disc must also be placed in the car in such a way that it is easy to read from the outside, preferably on the dashboard."

What if there is not enough time?

Can you then just keep turning the parking disc?

"No. 

Turning the parking disc 

after the end of the permitted parking time 

is prohibited,

said

ADAC.de.

Motorists should not overstrain the permitted parking time - because

, according to the experts , anyone who overstays by up to

half an hour

must expect a

fine .

Parking without or with an incorrectly set parking disc - what are the fines?

The ADAC provides information on the

warning

fines provided for in the new fines regulation :

Parked without a parking disc or parked incorrectly

warning money

up to 30 minutes

20 Euros

up to an hour

25 euros

up to two hours

30 euro

up to three hours

35 euros

over three hours

40 euros

Parking time can be extended by driving once around the block

Can the parking time be extended by driving back and forth once?

Here too, according to the ADAC, the answer was: No.

It is crucial that 

a new parking process is initiated after the time

has expired .

However: An extension of the parking time is possible, for example, by driving the car once around the block.

"If the space is still free, it's yours," it said on its website.

Don't forget the parking disc - otherwise it can get expensive.

Be careful when parking in the supermarket car park

What about parking in the supermarket square?

There, some car park operators want to ensure that only their own customers use the car park while they shop inside.

"

Because it is private property, those affected must follow the rules,"

emphasizes the automobile club.

The rules, in turn, would have to be “affixed in a clearly visible manner”, it says on

ADAC.de,

for example at the entrance to the parking lot.

"

Cars without a parking disc or with an exceeded time can then also be towed away or subject to contractual penalties."
