Public space taxation: leveraging stock to fund flows
In 2018 in France, the MAPTAM Law (loi de modernisation de l’action publique territoriale et d’affirmation des métropoles) introduced the decentralisation and decriminalisation of ticket parking, transferring the competence and organisation of the public service of parking to local authorities. The MAPTAM Law established a fixed post-parking fee (FPS or Forfait post-stationnement) instead of penalties, in cases of partial payment or non-payment of parking fees.
