Pointing to the need for a comprehensive parking policy for the city, the High Court Friday said if the situation was not controlled, there would be no space in Mumbai in another five years.

A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice G S Kulkarni was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Janhit Manch seeking regulation of traffic in Mumbai.
