Land grabbing on GN Chetty Road
The parking woes of the city are multiplying everyday. Access is no longer democratised. Private restaurants have started marking off space as reserved for their visitors. I discovered this when I tried parking on GN Chetty Road the other day. Attendants from a hotel called Sandeepha converged to tell me that I had to get a move on, as the road in front of their hotel was reserved for their guests.
They had obviously worked out a ‘something’ for the ‘pay and park attendant’, as he also stopped by to explain to me why I had no business parking in front of a hotel I wasn’t going to.
Isn’t there something we can do about this? Someone we can take a complaint to, and expect some action from?
Or one day these guys will be claiming access to our own parking lots.
