Lucknow News | Leaving vehicles for more than 15 days in public parking now a punishable offence
Lucknow authorities will now take stringent measures against individuals who leave their vehicles unattended in public parking facilities for a period of 15 days or longer. To enforce this rule, both the LDA and Nagar Nigam officials will conduct regular inspection drives from time to time. They'll monitor and remove all abandoned vehicles from public parking complexes. These vehicles will subsequently be sent to dumping yards for disposal.
Reportedly, the directive to take action against abandoned vehicles in public parking facilities was issued by the Lucknow DM, Suryapal Gangwar following a surprise inspection drive conducted at the Kaiserbagh multilevel parking.
