My partner and I were required by the Regie to rent a parking space outside of my building for CHF 150 monthly. This was mandatory - if we wanted the apartment we had to take the parking space. I'm not complaining about this, as it is very convenient to have a space right in front of your home. My problem is that sometimes my partner is away and takes the car with him, so the parking space is empty for a few days. A couple of times I have come home to find cars parked in our spot. I usually leave them a note saying that the space is private and this seems to solve the problem.
However, this time I've come home for two days in a row to find the same car parked in our spot. I left a note yesterday, but the same car was there today. I left a new note, this time saying (in English and in bad French) that if I see the car again, I will call the police.
I'm aware of the fact that sometimes the parking place is unused for a few days, but nevertheless, I don't feel like subsidizing some idiot's parking. We will try getting in touch with the Regie tomorrow, but I wanted to know if anyone has had this problem before, and who would be best to call in case it keeps happening. I feel bad calling the police for something like this (I guess they have more important things to deal with). Would it be better to contact the transit police (or however the guys who walk around giving people tickets are called)?
Thanks in advance!
