Millions of people visit Amsterdam every year. The city was not built to handle the growing quantity of road traffic, however, so to keep it a pleasant, accessible place for visitors, residents and businesses alike, paid parking has been introduced in a large part of the city.
In order to maintain the accessibility and liveability of the city for everyone, the City Surveillance Service (Cition) enforces the parking regulations very strictly. Cars which are illegally parked or have repeatedly not paid to park (at least five unpaid parking fines) may be towed away by Dienst Stadstoezicht www.stadstoezicht.amsterdam.nl.
