I agree with the contents of the letter, as many of the people take it as their inherent right to park waywardly their vehicle and go away with little or no concern for others.

Grounds where vehicles could be parked free of cost resemble a battlefield, as many of the drivers tend to park in the most difficult manner. For their convenience to pull out their vehicle at ease, whenever they desire, they try to park in a way that obstructs slots for at least two other cars.

As rightly stated by the writer of the letter, this is nothing 
but arrogance and lack of 
civic sense.

The traffic police and RTA personnel should take strong note of such incidents, and fine such vehicles by conducting snap checks.

At the same time, it is also observed that many of the people do not leave their phone number on windscreen, in 
order to be able to contact them in urgency.

On such occasions, the person concerned first has to call the police and then be in a position to locate the missing owner of the wrongly parked vehicle. And then also he/she takes all the time on the earth to come and move the vehicle. Life will be easier if all of us can put our phone numbers on the dashboard for the convenience of others!
