The Times of India: "Bangalore is in dire need of a parking policy that will streamline traffic flow and free up roads."The reason there is a parking problem is that the footprint of the private auto does not fit in cities. The more you "free up roads," the more that cars can come into the city, making things worse. Bottom line, cars take up too much room.
Instead of punishing car drivers and creating massive parking bureaucracy, why not make public transit buses fare-free and reduce the number of cars on the road.
