A new "Green Zone" is introduced in surrounding central areas, with parking there at BGN 1 per hour.

The action of the Blue Zone will be furthermore extended to half of Saturdays, from 8 am to 2 pm.

The new ordinance of Sofia Municipality provoked the outrage of hundreds, who came out to protest what they saw as an iniquitous move against drivers in a city that does not have sufficient parking lots.
