    This place is illegal parking. When Mr. Ponnuraj was DC of Mangalore he bulldozed illegal tiles laid by shop fellow several times and made it public parking/bus waiting place. But, regular kickbacks given made local municipality, traffic police, politicians to remain mute & deaf of this illegal occupancy. Not only this even rain water drain passing through that building via bridge road was fully swallowed by wine shop and other food outlets as personal parking. Municipality is silent on that. Bridge road users always suffer in that area due to swallowed footpaths & illegal parking. High time for Traffic Police to install CCTV & fine all vehicles illegally parked and control all illegal activities happening on bridge road.
