Lack of parking space, more vehicles worsen Mumbai traffic

You know you are in Mumbai when Google Maps says it would take longer to reach your destination by car than by walking, according to a recent tweet.

According to experts, an increase in the number of vehicles on Mumbai’s roads — from 20.28 lakh to 33.52 lakh in six years — is the main reason behind the city’s traffic troubles. Insufficient parking space, which has led to illegal parking on the roads, compounded these woes further, with seemingly no solutions by the city’s traffic department.
