Car parking in Nakuru

Be prepared.

Hope this helps others to avoid a fine.

We were clamped in Nakuru.

No parking spaces on the main street so went into a side street.

Other vehicles parked there and some spaces so we parked our vehicle. Looked for parking notices - none around and no machines etc - so presumed it was free.

Returned to vehicle after 25 minutes to find it clamped. - other vehicles around had not been

A local person stated we had to go to the municipal office to pay the fine. Luckily he took us there as it was some way away.

No one around to query why we had been clamped. Just a clerk who stamped the document then on to the cashier to pay.

We then asked the person who unclamped the vehicle.He stated notice on roundabout as you enter Nakuru (about half a mile away) to inform one that you have to purchase a parking slip from the Municipal Office.

A tourist is more likely to be looking for directions and watching the traffic than for parking signs on a roundabout!

We did however, as a matter of interest, drive round one of the roundabouts but failed to see a sign.

Needless to say we did not remain in Nakuru to purchase goods so local traders lost out .
