An easy and safe Park and go option – Impose heavy fines for parking violations

During my recent visit to Bangalore’s Commercial Street on two ocassions, I witnessed a series of parking violations. Although there are traffic wardens, parking bays and payment options, I noticed drivers parking at will ignoring the inconvenience of the other commuters.

A casual talk with the roadside vendors revealed an interesting information. The fines are too low that drivers ignore instructions and ignoring an civic responsibilities and park wherever they want and go finish there work and come back.

Even if there cars are locked they have to pay only a nominal fine and the lock act as a safety for their vehicles with added police protection.

I think it is time the authorities impose heavier fines and initiate stricter measures to curb such traffic violations causing inconvenience to road users.
