Prague has a reasonably good road infrastructure; nevertheless, this doesn’t mean traffic jams or problems with finding a parking place don’t occur. Also, break-ins or vehicle thefts are a daily issue but are no worse than in any other European city. The wise thing to do is to leave your car in safeguarded car parks. Parking fees in Prague city centre can be fairly expensive, and during peak hours it is hard to find empty spaces. By ignoring parking signs, you are risking your car being towed away.
