New Year precautions lead to free parking

People using their cars in parts of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague will be able to park free of charge over the next few days as parking meters are sealed up to prevent New Year firework damage, the Telegraaf reports

In Amsterdam, city parking authority Cition stresses parking is not free but 2,200 of the city’s 3,700 parking meters will be fitted with a special cap to prevent vandals inserting fireworks.
In The Hague, half of the 1,800 meters will be out of action and in Rotterdam, 2,800.
