  1. Thank You Sir, finally some action is taken instead of Rs.100 fine. I was very saddened to see Vehicles parked under the “No Parking” Boards which are installed by Me at My cost for the kind request of Traffic Police. I am kindly requesting the new Commissioner of Police Mr. Sanjive Patil and DCP Mr. Manjunath and DCP Mrs.Uma to get tough with Multiple Stories Building owners to clear their Vehicle storage areas which are used for commercial purposes. Just look at near Sony Building near Tandoor Bar on Jail Road. Building Parking is rented for commercial purpose and vehicles along with Bar customers block the road after 7 pm. Plus large Luxury Bus belongs to SRS Travels Parks blocking road. Under Law no Bus are allowed on this road and this bus is there everyday without fear even after Traffic Police Warning. Take a look at City Hospital area and take strict action. At the request of Kadri Traffic Inspector Mr.Suresh, I have Installed 4 (four) ‘No Parking’ Boards. Today there is only one board left standing and 3 are missing. MCC Contractor hands are in this operation along with Politician. I request all non vehicle People who walk on road to call Commissioner of Police on Call in day and request the need. Traffic Police do their best if Public Supports them like I do. They have only 2 Eyes-2 Hands-2 Legs like Public and they need Help of extra Eyes,Hands and Legs. So Please Help.
