I agree a 100% on this. On the contrary, such frequent changes confuse people and they'd rather chose to pay off fines/bribes than constantly learn new laws.

Urban Development needs to have far better planning skills & Govt needs to ensure it's implemented in reality.

Also as suggested, the number of people as well as the technology managing roads needs to be improved/increased drastically.

Only when the basics are right, we should try other (read extreme) measures per scenario basis. At least the basics will "pave the way" for better future roads in non-metros who when in future move to metros will implement most of the same learnings with very little new learning curve.

Haven't bought a car in the recent past, so not entirely sure of the applicable law, but I heard, even now, you need to 'prove' that you have a legitimate parking space before buying a 4-wheeler. And how do you prove it? An affidavit on a 10-rupee stamp paper.

The problem is not fewer laws, the problem is no enforcement. But I guess the state govt does have a say on the police here, so they can't really up the ante on violations.

And police will continue with their age old methods unless someone makes them see some sense. Everyday I see the police cranes shuttling between the local market and the police station 1.5 kms away. Why can't they simply buy a 1000 clamps and put them on ALL the vehicles rather than picking and choosing a few. Make these people travel to the police station and pay the fines before unlocking the wheels. The crane might have been a good option when there were 4 or 5 cars wrongly parked. Now with that number close to 500, it isn't the best solution.

Very well said. The average Delhite is least bothered about other's convenience but is ready to kill if he/she is inconvenienced in any way, on the roads.

I have heard of this law but I don't think it exist in Delhi. Last month we bought a new car and no one asked for such information from us. Is this specific to few areas in Delhi.
