City lacks of Enforcement in terms of Parking!

Enforcement is a key issue in traffic and parking management systems in Chennai, as in many other cities, with a lack of resources to monitor parking and instances of bribing. There is also a lack of coordination between various stakeholders of parking. As a result, there exists a serious lacuna in the overall parking management framework in Chennai. A stronger enforcement in terms of strictly enforcing traffic and parking rules and penalising violations has been instrumental in modulating the traffic etiquette.
It was found that in pay and park parking slots, there is a serious gap between the Corporation which manages parking and the traffic police who enforces parking discipline, resulting in poor parking management. The failure to tow a vehicle parked illegally or parked beyond the prescribed limits will encourage users to park without discipline, leading to a loss for the exchequer, as the price is not tagged with the duration of parking.
