Colombo parking rules will be strictly enforced

Jul 22, 2010 2:53:49 AM - itnnews.lk

Laws related to the parking of vehicles within the Colombo City will be strictly enforced. A streamlined traffic plan will be implemented for the safety of the city.

Vehicles which arrive at business locations from 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., can be parked for a small period.  There are places identified for parking of vehicles on every road.

The Police will take stern action against vehicles which will be parked outside these locations. Such places have not been located only on several roads in the Colombo City.

The Police pointed out that there are no business ventures on these roads. The Colombo Municipal Council is already maintaining several parking locations.

It is hoped to increase such parking places in the future. With the eviction of payment hawkers, road accidents have not taken place. O.I.C. of the Traffic Division of the Cinnamon Garden Police Samapth Perera emphasized that permission will not be granted on parking of vehicles on pavements.
