So called educated & sophisticated class of the society!!!!!

For the first time the roads have improved in Trivandrm ,they are  wide enough & in gud condition but the problem is people not having enough civic sense. People park their cars on both sides of the road and convert it into a one way !!!!! The road between kowdiar and marapalam(via kuruvakonam jn)is facing this problem especially at the supreme baker's and hercules motors....and the best part is that the people living here and visiting this area are from upper middle class & above,sophisticated lot. It causes inconvience to traffic!!! Hope some sense prevails in them!!!!

But where would they park otherwise? Should the state not provide place to park too ... at least some area should be identified

Mainly it the responsibility of the roadside shopping complex people. They should provide enough parking space for their customers.

How can a small vendor provide parking space? The govt. should identify an area and all the vendors can pay a fee for maintaining it ... like they have in Saphalyam Complex ... self sustainable model.

Come on Mathew! Are you saying the vendors in the above mentioned Kuravankonam stretch are small vendors? and the stretch closer to Marappalam where the small vendors are, such an issue is not there :-)

at least ppl can park on one side of the raod may be they have to walk a little!!!!!

Whatever said and done, as a responsible citizen, should we just park and solve our issue for the time being or think wider and act responsibly? All of us push the ball to someone else's court, but end of the day, we are not resolving it unless we ourselves do something about the problem. We are capable of resolving these issues. Point is do we really want to solve it or just talk about it and spent sometime?

i do agree dat if each one of us think & act problems wil b solved...u can't blame govt.4 everything.....i don't know abt others but i always park my car in such a way so that it doesn't cause inconvenience to others...traffic police should put a board there one side parking left or right..then ppl wil follow!!!!

comments on the subject are interesting. The general trend of our society is to push the ball to the governments court & usually pretends that we dont have any responsibility as a citizen. Present trend is that as the educational & economic status improves arrogant behavior also increasing. Malayalis, who used to be law abiding people earlier, start behaving like the Biharis & Eastern UP people of 1980s. Good Improvement.

I wish we had localised groups cropping up to improve their roads and neighborhoods. They should group together, focus on the most pin area around them and rectify, even if it'd cleaning up and opening up a stangnant canal by the side of the road... frankly, simple things would make bigger differences.. we need people who can "START" and then many would just join and contribute.. we badly need LEADERS.. who can innitiate, lead .. and Make it happen!

when these buildings come up...there should be provision for underground parking...thats how buildings should be designed...that will help then we need to have some parking parks just like gandhi park to help ease the problem
Kapil Sreedhar, on Sep 13, 2012 05:51:30 PM
 
 
yes kapil very true it should be done in future but what about the present situation...don't u think that police should fine them...especially in the evening its very difficult to take your vehicle through that stretch....ISN'T IT THE DUTY OF THE PEOPLE TO HAVE SOME CIVIC SENSE!!!!!! Y DO WE CALL OURSELVES EDUCATED!!!!!
