Parking a car in Kyiv is an adventure and often a scandal, as motorists block entire streets and entryways, destroy lawns and menace pedestrians.
There’s no punishment for scofflaws, moreover, so they keep spoiling Kyiv’s urban life.
Kyiv authorities say they’re too busy improving the capital’s public transportation while police say they are too busy “solving real crimes” to pay much attention to parking.
