New Markings on Designated Parking Area

Believe that this new, at least in AG. The normal free and unlimited (time) parking spaces used to be painted in white. One can park in any of these without the usual display of the blue badge. However, recently they have been painted over with yellow colour. It is still free and unlimited (?), however, there is a new restriction. You need to have a 'business' in that area to be able to park there. Meaning you can't just park in a yellow parking bay and go off e.g shopping I mean, if you use this yellow parking space in a nearby residential area. The blue parking bay is still there, with the usual time limitation and display of the blue badge.

White
Parking is free (as in free for all, not free beer). Anybody may park there. But can be limited in time (ex. max 2h or so). May involve a cost (parking meter, as said, not free beer). Comon in shopping areas or residents with visitor parking spots

Blue
Parking is stricktly limited for a short time and involves a "Parkscheibe". These "blue zones" have a time persmission marked so inform how long you can park.

Yellow
Private ones. If you park there, you are trespassing

They don't need to be private, they can also be reserved for a certain group or vehicle. Parking lots for taxis or the disabled for example.

Blue - limited, unless there is a sign exempting holders of the correct residency permit.

Yellow - in Basel, these often indicate places you can park outside of work hours, or week days. They're used near schools for example.

Re: New Markings on Designated Parking Area

Thank you Not All There.
This happened just last week, outside my daughter's block of flats. It was always marked white. Then all of a sudden, someone came over night with a pot of yellow paint. That really threw me off. People visiting at the same time were just as taken aback.
