Parking tiff may spark tire slashing

EIGHT residents in a housing complex in Zhabei District were astonished yesterday morning to find their car tires were flat, slashed the previous night.

The attack may be related to tensions over the parking shortage in the area, community officials of the Yanchang Residential Area said. Zhabei District police were investigating.

The damaged cars, parked in the same area, were scratched and one had a smashed window. The vandalism was found around 7am when residents were leaving for work.

"I was planning to drive to work and found my tires were broken and flat," complained a resident surnamed Mei. Two tires on the left side of Mei's car were punctured. Mei had to call the garage to change the tires.

With only 144 spaces for 200 cars in the complex, parking disputes have been increasing, officials said. Some cars end up parked in green areas.

Property managers have suggested converting some of the green spaces into parking.
