Footpaths turn parking lots!

July 30, 2021


The footpaths on Ramavilas Road and Dewan’s Road are completely encroached by motorists and the menace is increasing day by day.

Earlier, the uneven footpath itself was a menace but now that the authorities have relaid the footpath, people are creating a nuisance by parking vehicles haphazardly all over the place.

The footpath is for the pedestrians to walk freely but the owners of four-wheelers and two-wheelers have actually made it a parking lot for themselves. There is no designated parking sign board on Dewan’s Road but still people park on footpaths. To add to that, the other side of the road has become an auto stand. So on either sides of road the vehicles are parked thus inconveniencing the pedestrians and forcing them to walk on the road risking their lives.

I request the authorities concerned to solve this issue and also take strict measures so that no one parks their car on a footpath as it is quite difficult to move around by walk when the cars are on footpath.

    Really sad to see bad roads, encroached footpaths, no driving order making it impossible to walk a mile in the city. Public servents (including our politians!) are ignorant and forgotten their duties.

    The so called public servants are todays VVIPs and they travel in chauffer driven cars with their chelas and police clearing the way. They do not suffer hapless pedestrian’s pain.
