The prosecutor’s office found it illegal to create special parking spaces for women near a shopping center in Kazan. The press service of the Tatarstan Prosecutor’s Office reported this on August 6.

“The organization of special parking spaces for women is illegal and contains elements of discrimination against drivers on the basis of gender,” the message says.

At the Kazan shopping center, the parking spaces for women drivers were painted pink and each increased to 4.4 m (instead of the standard 2.5 m).

According to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, any form of restriction of citizens’ rights on the basis of social, racial, national, linguistic or religious affiliation is prohibited, as well as a man and a woman have equal rights and freedoms and equal opportunities for their implementation. ” In addition, it is specified that the size of parking spaces contradicts the requirements of state standards.

Thus, the Prosecutor’s Office submitted to the General Director of the Kazan TSUM Trading House Joint Stock Company a proposal to eliminate the violations identified. TSUM employees removed the “female” parking lot by painting it over, the portal reported.

On July 16, it was reported that the “Search for cars moved to yards” function became available in the Moscow Parking application. According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow, the function is in the section “Fines and evacuations”. It is noted that using the Moscow Parking application, you can also pay for parking, fines for traffic violations, moving and storing a car at a special parking lot.
