Crackdown on illegal parking

Officials directed to take stern action at meeting

The District Level Road Safety Council, chaired by District Collector T.V. Subhash, has decided to take strict action against illegal parking along the national highway and roads under the Public Works Department (PWD).

The meeting held at the Collectorate here on Monday directed the police, Regional Transport Authority and PWD to take necessary steps in this direction.

Complaints were raised at the meeting that at many places the PWD’s land adjacent to major roads was illegally being used for parking. It has often been pointed out that the illegal parking caused traffic jams and road accidents.

The District Collector directed officials to immediately inspect such places and take action against unauthorised parking and illegal roadside eateries.
