No parking charges for first seven minutes?

Saudi Arabia: According to a new rule, motorists can enjoy seven minutes of free parking before being issued a ticket.

You can leave your vehicle in the parking area for seven minutes without paying anything in the city of Makkah. But if the motorist fails to pay for parking after the seven minutes, he will be fined accordingly.

An employee will make rounds in the parking areas and photograph the number plates of vehicles parked without paying. If the vehicle is spotted at the same place after seven minutes, a fine will be issued immediately, Saudi Gazette reported.

It is known that internationally seven minutes is an acceptable limit for fining the violators.
