Let’s face it, humanity has become so big that managing it is an utter nightmare. We are somehow able to keep things reasonably in order, but there are a lot of things that local governments and councils need to focus on, and when there is such a long list of things that need to be handled it can be quite easy to get sidetracked and focus on things that are a lot less important than others.
One of the tasks that a local government is handed is the development of a city. If you live in a city, you would know that most people get around by using cars. The only problem is that the way this driving works is pretty dysfunctional and sometimes even downright chaotic. This is why it is extremely important for parking lots to be developed in as many areas as possible. These parking lots are often owned by private entities who run them on a for profit basis, but the fact of the matter is that there are a number of different reasons why this should not be.
First and foremost, public parking is a right that everyone should receive whether or not they have money. That car parking owners charge nominal fees is not important, they should not be allowed to profit off of a need to park your car somewhere safe. Local governments also need to look into car park sweeping in order to keep the publicly maintained car parking spaces as spick and span as possible. Parking lots are often dirty because of the fact that they are not maintained on a regular basis, and private owners often don’t focus on it that much because people come there regardless. Local councils need to change this.
