Why is parking spots a nightmare for flat owners in Mumbai?

In many residential localities of the city, the glut of cars has further added problems. Since most homes in central and south Mumbai have old residential complexes that don’t have a garage, the vehicles parked outside in the leafy by-lanes eat into the road space. Multiple cars in the same house have only worsened the scene. One often comes across slow-moving car drivers endlessly searching for a parking lot, motorcyclists carving out a wedge to squeeze their bikes in, haphazardly parked school vans adding the woes.
