Roads are meant for free flow of traffic which may include bicycle, 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers, 4-wheelers and heavy vehicles. Bumost of the important roads in Trichy are clooded with parking of two-wheelers on both the sides, making the roads shrink. Parking on the roads are mainly due to lack of common parking spaces and moreover, most of the commercial complexes ad buildings do not have or allot parking space, which leads to parking of vehicles on the road sides, causing a great menace to the commuters. Though this issue has been brought to the knowledge of the concerned authorities by various organisations and social activists, none have take any effort to the roads.
Further more, the roads are occupied by illegal parking of commercial vehicles as parking lots, not minding about the traffic congestion. The NO PARKING sign boards are found in the Trichy, which serves no use but the public question ‘ Where to park?’.
Now the vehicle population in Trichy city has increased many fold, while the roads to accommodate the traffic has not been taken care. It is the expectation of the city common public, whether the concerned authorities take due action to retrieve the roads in Trichy from illegal and unauthorised parking.
