Clamping the Automobiles on the No-parking Zone

No-Parking Zone Clamp

Just about all the streets in La Antigua Guatemala are one-way venues and you can only park on one side of the street; the other side is marked on the side of the sidewalk with red paint. If you park on the no-parking zone you may have your vehicle immobilized by the cepo police (cepo are the big orange clamps that are put on the tires). If I am not mistaken, I believe a big orange clamp, or cepo as they call it here, will set you back about Q250 (US$1 equals 7.67 Quetzales, the Guatemalan currency name).

I feel for this poor fellow who was just cashing his check; he parked right across the bank. I know where his cash is going. 🙁
