Dear Editor,Illegal parking in various market areas is eating away road space, leading to frequent traffic jams in the city. The city has become so congested that people have to look for parking space for vehicles and at several places, drivers have created their own unauthorised parkings. The traffic congestion is emerging as the biggest problem in the city and in absence of proper management, even traffic police personnel are finding it hard to deal with the situation.The increasing number of vehicles and paucity of parking space have been playing havoc with the traffic management in Jammu city. In the areas like Circular road, Kacchi Chawani, Parade, BC Road, Panjthirthi, Gandhi Nagar, New Plot, Janipur pedestrians and commuters are continuously annoyed with the honking and screeching of vehicles.It becomes difficult for vehicles to pass through roads, as at a number of places people, park their vehicles on roadsides, leaving little space for easy movement of big vehicles, leading to jams. Many times there are no traffic police personnel deployed on busy roads and chowks to manage the flow of traffic.Circular road which seems to be a escape route has now become a victim of this illegal parking. The vehicles can be seen parked in a haphazard manner anywhere on this road. A visit from Gujjar Nagar to Peer Kho can clear the whole picture that how this vey stretch has become a free parking zone.Vehicles can be seen parked in an irregular manner creating a mess on the road. Many a times huge traffic jams are there due to wrong parking done here.I believe it is the responsibility of people to keep the roads free from any type of encroachment and wrong parking. They should understand that due to wrong parking of vehicles by them, others will face the problems. So it is the responsibility of every commuter and car owner to park his vehicle properly so that others do not face any problem.Moreover, I request the traffic Police department to take some action against violsters and make this road clear for smooth flow of vehicles. Many tourist vehicles use this road and these illegal parking pose a bad impression on the tourists visiting Jammu.Suhail Sharma,Pakki Dhakki.
