Lack of parking space and haphazard parking has become a major concern for residents of Sector 17 in Gurgaon.

In the absence of proper facilities, people visiting the sector market park their cars randomly on the road and even in the pedestrian lane, leading to traffic jams especially during evening rush hours.

Residents complain that it is often difficult for them to move out of their houses. RWA president Colonel (retd) LR Sharma said, "Taxis, school buses, local vendors and shopowners leave no place for residents visiting the market to park their vehicles."

According to residents, visitors and villagers residing in neighbouring Sukhrali use the free parking available here.

The presence of commercial establishments nearby worsens the situation. Residents suggest that the vacant Huda plots can be utilised to set up a parking lot.
