The continuing menace of haphazard parking in front of residential buildings figured prominently at a public grievance meeting organised at Kumara Park West on Sunday.

The meeting was organised Gandhi Nagar Block Congress Committee to address the problems faced by the residents. Kumara Park area residences are among the worst hit by haphazard parking as they are situated near the busy roads around Seshadripuram College and Railway Parallel Road.

The residents many a time, find the entrances to their houses blocked because of the menace!

“College students abuse us when we tell them not to park their vehicles in front our houses and also create a nuisance by smoking,” said Harsha, a resident.

The senior citizens face another problem as students zip by at top speeds. They complained that it has become impossible for them to move safely on streets due to the speeding menace.

Chitra Venkatesh of Kumara Park Residents’ Welfare Association pointed out that, in their bid to control rash driving, many residents have put up illegal speed breakers.

The Association also requested the BBMP to provide an auto tipper so that the residents can collect garbage during the hours when BBMP workers’ services were not be available.
