The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has put forward a proposal to address unattended vehicles in its parking lots and along city roads. Notices will be posted on these vehicles, urging their owners to move them.
The PMC’s special projects department has conducted a survey at parking lots to identify such vehicles. Contractors have reported that some vehicles have been left unattended for several days, and the administration is unsure why their owners have not retrieved them. To tackle this issue, the PMC will seek information from the Regional Transport Office (RTO) and traffic police about these vehicles.
According to sources, contractors are responsible for maintaining records of parked vehicles’ registration numbers, but there is currently no system in place to keep track of the drivers or owners. The civic administration’s anti-encroachment department has announced plans to intensify their efforts against unattended vehicles in the coming days.
As per the information provided, a survey of parking lots, which will soon be expanded to cover various roads throughout the city. We will consult with the RTO and traffic police to determine if an auction can be held to dispose of unattended vehicles. Numerous residents have expressed frustration with the inconvenience caused by these abandoned vehicles on the side of the road.
