The CD of every day’s work comes to the traffic department. If the day-to-day work is checked, then the troubles of the drivers will be reduced a little and the arbitrariness of the employees will be stopped.
movement has been warned
Towing a vehicle for no parking in Nashik city is levied a penalty. But before levying the penalty, the question should be answered whether there is sufficient number of parking space in the city. Road construction work is going on in many parts of the city under the Smart City program. Citizens are finding it difficult to walk due to the digging of the road. There is not enough parking space to park the vehicle. Where should the drivers park their vehicles in such a situation? Penalty is being charged from them for parking the car in no parking zone. There is a demand of the drivers that they should be given parking facility first. In this regard, the youth of the Nationalist Congress Party has warned of agitation.
