|GP: Graz reduced parking fee for low emission vehicles - Austria|
Low emission vehicles gets a 30 percent reduction of parking fees in Graz. The new differentiated parking system, encourages more citizens to use vehicles with less environmental impact..
The new scheme gives real benefits to low emission vehicles and provides a popular selling point of the new system.
The discount was introduced at the same time as parking was made more expensive. Thus the discount for clean vehicles was a positive argument for the politicians in the infected media debate about parking costs. This ensured both political support and massive cover for the discount in media.
