Park & Ride

Where not to Park

  • Blue zones: your car has a high chance of getting towed for parking in any blue zone. They are reserved for companies with offices in the area and people leaving in the nearby buildings.
  • Places not marked for parking: parking in any area that has no parking labeling will get you a wheel clamp. You will find a receipt on your windshield with a phone number written on it; call the officer on the number provided and he will remove the clamp. There is no fixed price for removing a clamp, only minimal and maximal amount. Police officers often don’t speak English.

Security Advice

  • Car break-ins take the biggest share of property-related crimes in Prague
  • Don’t leave your bag in the car
  • Make it obvious that there is nothing to steal from the car:
    • Put non-valuable items visibly behind the windshield
    • Open all compartments, glove boxes, etc.

Car Theft: High Risk

  • German made cars priced at 30.000+ EUR and new Skoda models have the highest risk of being stolen
  • Cars owned by locals (in contrast to tourist cars) always have a third-party alarm system in addition to the pre-installed one. Thieves prefer tourist cars for obvious reasons.
  • If your car falls into the high-risk category, only use protected parking. Better safe than sorry.
