  1. Park & Collect experience

    tl;dr; first Guys, I messed up. I parked somewhere where I should not have. The owner uses the Park&Collect app, took the evidence, and now I received the bill for 147€. I am guilty, I exactly know when and where this happened, and I am ready to pay the settlement. I understand that this is an alternative dispute resolution (wiki). The property owner gets 40€ the rest is for the company behind it. Is there a chance that he may still require more money when I pay the settlement? Using e.g. a different app? I am not trying to get off the hook. I just want to make sure that the owner can't use five different apps where every single one sends me a bill for 150€.   A longer (but slightly entertaining) story: I built a new desktop PC for my elderly father as a Christmas gift. Due to the pandemic, I decided to ship it to him along with my spare LCD screens. The package was over 30Kg. I had to change the packaging about three times to get under the GLS limit (31.5Kg). I rushed to the nearest GLS Paketshop on 18th of December. Since the package was difficult to carry I wanted to park as close to the door as possible. I turned on the hazard light to show that I am around. There was room for one compact car but not for my station wagon. The rear axle was already on the border. A part of the car slightly blocked the exit from someone's house. At the same time there was a guy leaving the backyard and he could easily pass by. I knew that I exceeded but the guy made it. We even nodded to each other so everything was all right. I took the beefy package and brought it to the GLS Paketshop. On the way back there was already a guy in Cayenne (what a silly car) waiting for me to move away. I went straight to him and apologized as much as I can. He was extremely mean (a guy with golden Schmuck like disco owners used to have in 90'). I was not surprised. I would be also mean if I had to drive white Cayenne. I guess most of you know how much time it takes to drop off a package. It may have been 3 minutes, probably less.  Even though the guy was a grotesque resemblance of Al Pacino he was right and I was wrong. I also somehow understand that if this happens to him 4 times a week it sucks. Driving a tractor is not convenient in the city and when somebody blocks the entrance? That ruins the day ;-)   #Stay healthy & park well.    Korla
  2. Bewohnerparkausweis online

    Hello I've apply online for parking licence where I live:   Akademieviertel / Maxvorstadt And I did click on (email confirmation), so I got it immediately. This was like 2 weeks ago, and so far nothing else. Did anyone apply online? How long usually takes? It suppose to contact my landlord to confirm my flat doesn't include parking, but would it affect if I rent a parking around my place? You know my area is all paid parking. Does anyone know how can I ask for the status?  Thank you very much, I did search for this issue around the forum and I couldn't find anything.
