Lack of parking space and excessive vehicles is one of the greatest issues we face today. Male’ city mayor Shifa Mohamed expressed concern over the failure to resolve this problem. She tweets that, “all the institutions must join together to solve the issue of imported vehicles into the city. Small alleys are full. The decision of the Transport Ministry and Council is clear, there is no more room to park.”
This is followed by a large number of complaints regarding the several parking violation stickers issued by the Police when there was no space to park. 40 vehicles were permitted to park in the parking lot recently constructed in front of the Supreme Court for a fee of MVR 3000. Former President Yameen Abdul Gayoom responded to this issue by importing mechanical parking systems, which turned out to be a fail. What do you think is the solution to this?
