Independent Agency Proposed for Towing Vehicles in Chennai No-Parking Zones

Chennai may see the introduction of an independent agency responsible for towing vehicles parked in no-parking zones within the Chennai Metropolitan Area. This initiative is part of the draft parking policy for the area, awaiting government approval. The policy aims to address the shortage of traffic police personnel and tackle unauthorized parking effectively.

Currently, the Greater Chennai Traffic Police are responsible for towing vehicles from no-parking areas, but their limited manpower has hindered enforcement efforts. Once approved, the policy will empower agencies to handle towing, relieving the traffic police and improving parking regulation across the city.
