Mangaluru, Nov 25, 2017: The city police will take photographs of buildings that have shops in the space meant for parking vehicles and send it to the Mangaluru City Corporation for action, said Police Commissioner T.R. Suresh on Friday.
Following a call pointing out violation of norms by a building near Sridevi College in Ballalbagh during the weekly phone-in programme, Mr. Suresh directed Assistant Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Manjunath Shetty to start taking photographs of such violations and report them to the MCC. “We shall start documenting such buildings,” he said.
The caller said a building near the college had shops at the space meant for parking vehicles. As a result, vehicles were parked by the roadside and hindering traffic movement on the road.
Meanwhile, a caller from Garodi complained of hindrance to traffic because of vehicles parked near the Kankanady police station and the Traffic South police station.
When Mr. Suresh said the vehicles had been moved away, the caller insisted that some vehicles were still near the two police stations.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Hanumantharaya said that some vehicles seized by the Kankanady police have not been moved because of objection by the owner of the building in which the police station is located.
A caller from Gurupura asked Mr. Suresh to act against the owner of a hotel in his area for letting waste water on to the road. A resident of Bajpe sought action against two-wheeler riders using flashy headlights. A resident of Kodikal pointed out a private city bus operator’s illegal use of vacuum horns on some buses.
