Sofia Launches SMS Payment of Parking Tax
From now on all who want to pay their parking tax will have to send a text message to number 1302 if they are Mtel or Globul subscribers. Until now paying for the service happened only with buying parking tickets.
The price for an hour's stay in the blue parking zones is again BGN 1. To this the mobile operators add the price for the sent text message. After sending the sms, the person will get a reply that the payment was successful. Five minutes before the pre-paid hour elapses, the subscriber will receive a notification.
The blue zones, where people can pay via SMS for parking, are three. The firs zone includes the Alexander Nevski square, Moskovska Street in front of the Vassil Levski monument and Oborishte Street.
The second zone wraps the Narodno Sabranie square and the side lane of the Tzar Osvoboditel Boulevard. The third zone is at the Macedonia Square.

Satellite TV Bulgaria reported that when the cameras were introduced, accidents, red light runnings, etc. went down for a while. Then the вЂњsmartвЂќ BG motorists realized that the cops were swamped with video material and there was nobody to process it, issue tickets and collect the fines, so things went back to вЂњnormalвЂќ. Sad but true.
"Dude this can happen in any nationality."
Right. But watching the plamenski video, I really think that THIS (what we see on the Sofia crossroads) cannot happen in any nationality - cars go really straight on to bump into other cars or smash a pedestrian and pedestrians do the same with cars with predictable effect.
Only one white car tried to avoid major accident and actually did - the others drive like zombies - speed up, straight on and boom. WTF does it mean??
