Next time you park your vehicle in a no-parking zone,be ready to shell out more for releasing it from the auto pound as the Administration has increased the charges of towing away of wrongly parked vehicles by Rs 100.

These are charges that traffic violators pay in addition to the penalty for parking violations. “If we find any car parked at the wrong place,we tow it away to the auto pound with our recovery van. The person gives Rs 300 as penalty and Rs 200 as towing charges. Now,the towing charges have been increased,” said Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Hardeep Singh Doon.

The traffic police reportedly take away more than 70 two-wheelers and 15 cars every day from no-parking spaces. The traffic police are hiring six more cranes from private agents in addition to the already existing three cranes. “The traffic officers will allow hiring of private cranes. But the private crane owners will be given the same amount that the government charges from traffic violators for towing away the vehicles,” added Doon.

For DSP J S Cheema,the increase in charges is expected to discourage people from parking their vehicles at wrong places. “It will certainly make people park their vehicles in specified parking lots. The major problem areas are Sectors 34,35,17,8 and 9,” added Cheema.
