Cops to crackdown on Noida parking mafia
Noida District Magistrate (DM) BN Singh on Monday directed the police to identify parking “mafia” and register cases against them and also tow away vehicles kept in no parking zones.
In a letter to the SP Noida and the SP Traffic, Singh asked them to clamp the Goonda and Gangster Act on such parking mafias operating in the city.
“It has been seen that the parking mafia operate in many areas. Some licenced parking contractors spread their operations to other nearby roads without permission. They also allow vehicles to park in no parking zones,” he said.
Residents park cars and bikes in no parking zones near shopping complexes. This blocks traffic and leads to congestion, the official noted. Evwn auto-rickshaws park haphazardly at metro rail stations, he said.
