Growing vehicle menace in metros

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Parking of vehicles is a big menace in most metropolitan cities of our country & Mumbai being the most affected due to metro work both on the Link road and Western Express Highway. There is hardly any road left in Mumbai to drive with most roads encroached by both sides parking and roads dug up for infrastructure projects. Driving too has become dangerous and accidents are on the rise which is a matter of grave concern.

It's time that govt takes cognizance of the menace urgently to incorporate measures in their Development Plan to correct the situation. Underground parking (due to lack of space on roads) and public parking buildings is the need of the hour. People should only be allowed to buy new vehicles if they have parking space in their buildings and make it mandatory for one vehicle maximum per family to ease traffic congestion. People using public vehicles must be given 'carbon credits' which could have monetary value that can be exchanged at mall shopping to encourage people to use public transport.

Heavy taxes and duties on cars too would discourage people from buying private vehicles. Also, public transport too should be improved and made comfortable so that people use them often and use their own cars only in cases of emergency or on holidays when there is less traffic on the roads!
