The latest parking novelty has just come into effect in Rome. The city has allocated 85 pay-parking spaces in 33 areas around the city for women who are pregnant, and to people with babies iunder a year old in the car. The parking spaces are painted pink and clearly marked with a car and a stork carrying a baby. However there will be no fines for other people parking in those spaces, as long as the parking ticket is paid. The authorities are relying on a civic sense of responsibility among Romes drivers to leave the spaces empty.
