Parking is just like a property now-a-days, in Saudi Arabia where traffic laws are strict and fines are high enough equal to monthly salary of employees. Still this not means that people might start following each and every traffic law, people whenever get opportunity they hide from authorities and do what they want. One of the main reason for wrong parking is shortage of space, people usually tries to block other cars and vehicles to park by putting hurdles on parking space so that they can park their own vehicles. People place stones and barriers to stop parking of other vehicle.
When drivers didn’t find the space for parking their car they tries to park where parking is not allowed, there is another option of paid parking which might not be used by everyone.
