According to ÖAMTC, parking violators are virtually “hunted down” during Advent: During this time, more towing is done than ever before. High costs are the consequence of towing.

Special caution in neighboring parking lots
According to the ÖAMTC, towing is always carried out in Vienna, but during the Christmas season, illegal parkers are particularly hunted down: On average, 100 vehicles are towed away every day, 50-60 in the summer months, and more than 200 in December.

More than 400 euro costs for wrong parker in Vienna
The fact that especially in Advent parking spaces are scarce, many drivers lose their nerve after endless circling and park illegally, makes the city’s coffers ring: If you have nothing to give away, you should definitely stop parking illegally. The replacement of a car parked in a disabled or bus parking space can cost more than 400 euros. ÖAMTC tip: The most expensive parking garage is clearly cheaper than towing.

Costs for towing in Vienna

According to ÖAMTC, towing costs a hefty 264 euros. The fee for keeping the vehicle at the MA 48 towing yard in Simmering is 10 euros per day. The fine for parking that obstructs traffic is usually 108 euros (up to 726 euros for serious offenses – such as parking in handicapped parking spaces). Those who then fetch their car by cab will pay a total of more than 400 euros.

Attention parking violators: This is the area where towing is most common
Cars parked in the second lane, in handicapped parking spaces, at streetcar or bus stops, in front of house entrances or in cab zones are particularly at risk of being towed away. Even on through roads, such as the Gürtel, cars are rigorously towed away – given the stopping ban in force during peak traffic periods.

Additional caution required in neighboring parking lots
In districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12, there are residents’ parking spaces in addition to the short-stay parking zones, according to ÖAMTC. If you have found a parking space, please make sure that it is not an adjacent parking space.
