[:en]The road signs in cities and towns of the Czech Republic warn that only those drivers – who have made a special payment – are allowed to enter the historic city center. The payment bill is planned to be 10 times more than now. Now, this amount is 20 CZK per day but the Czech government has decided to increase it to 200 CZK.

However, it is the maximum price that can be established, depending on the decision of the cities’ and towns’ administration. People, who live in the center, their relatives and property owners do not have to pay anything. The City Council even has the right to ask for the payment, not on a daily basis, but set a fixed price, for example, for the whole year.

However, the Czech entrepreneurs do not agree with this government decision.

“Administration is just trying to ‘clean out’ the city centers to make people go shopping on the outskirts of the city. In addition, this decision by the government will raise the cost of many services. Let’s imagine someone, coming to the city center to repair something, who had to pay CZK 200, and would include this fee in a bill that the customer would have to cover”, – suggested Karel Havlíček, the director of the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises of the Czech Republic.

Also, the prices in the shops might be increased. The reason is that suppliers of goods will charge shops the cost of the entry, and shops, respectively, will add it to the price of goods they sell.[:cs]The road signs in cities and towns of the Czech Republic warn that only those drivers – who have made a special payment – are allowed to enter the historic city center.

El pago será 10 veces mas de lo que es ahora. Hoy en día la cantidad es de 20 KC por día, pero el gobierno Checo decidió aumentarlo a 200 KC.

Sin embargo, es lo máximo que se puede establecer, dependiendo de la decisión de la administración de las ciudades y pueblos. La gente que vive en el centro, su parientes y dueños de propiedades no tienen que pagar nada. El consejo de la ciudad tiene el derecho de pedir el pago, no diariamente, sino que poner un precio fijo, por ejemplo, para todo el año.

Aun así, los empresarios Checos no están de acuerdo con esta decisión del gobierno.

Karel Havliček, director de la Asociación de Pequeñas y Medianas Empresas sugirió: “La administración solo esta intentando “limpiar” los centros de las ciudades para que la gente vaya a comprar en las afueras de la ciudad. Además, esta decisión del gobierno va a aumentar el costo de muchos servicios. Imaginemos a alguien que venga al centro de la ciudad a reparar algo, tendría que pagar 200 KC y lo deberá incluir en el recibo que el cliente tendrá que cubrir”.

Los precios en las tiendas también podrían aumentar. La razón seria que los proveedores cobrarán a las tiendas el costo de la entrada, por lo que las tiendas lo agregaran al precio de los productos en venta.
