Police and local authorities in Rome are considering more stringent fines for double-parking. Backed by major consumer associations, the plans involve charging offenders for obstructing the flow of traffic as well as double-parking; this would see fines of up to 71, instead of 35, as well as two points off the driving licence. But double-parking is not the only nuisance on the capitals roads: loading and unloading of goods is commonplace outside of agreed hours, with delivery vehicles rarely respecting timetables and often causing tailbacks. Tourist buses are also ignoring traffic plans, regularly passing through streets from which they are banned. The recommendations also criticise the underground metro, as many stations lack proper air conditioning as well as elevators, which are vital for disabled travellers.
