Street parking fee issue|
NEW DELHI: The recent proposal to levy charges for street parking in colonies has divided residents and environmentalists. Reacting to the proposal by the Delhi high court-appointed Special Task Force, residents said the government should improve public transport first. Environmentalists, though, said the move would check the increase in the city's vehicle population.
"The government should provide better public transport facility before thinking of introducing parking charges in residential colonies,'' said Pankaj Aggarwal of Delhi Joint Front. But many residents also admitted that the sharp increase in private vehicles had affected the quality of life in colonies. "There is no space to walk in our colony. In the absence of a good public transport system, people have no option but to use cars,'' said Vasant Kunj resident Amit Aggarwal.
