Impact of the energy crisis: what drivers must now consider when parking
In addition, you should also note the following: Even if you park the vehicle under a lit lantern, you may need to turn on the parking lights. This applies to lanterns that don’t shine all night and will eventually burn out. You can recognize these lanterns by a red ring with a white border (road sign 394).
Below these, in built-up areas after dark, parking can only be done with parking lights or parking warning signs on. If you park outside built-up areas in the dark, you must turn on the parking lights.
Although it has an illumination level as low as the parking light, the parking light activates the headlights and taillights on both sides of the car, which helps visibility. Forgetting or deliberately not having a position or position light can be punished with a fine of 20 euros.
