Facebook user Chia Hong Hiang, shared how he parked his vehicle in front of the “rubbish shutter” because the loading and unloading bay was taken up by other vehicles.
He sent his three children home and also brought groceries and their school bags up, before returning to his vehicle about 11 minutes later.
He then found out that he was fined 8 minutes after parking his car there to send his kids up, and asked why the other cars that were parked at the loading and unloading bay were not fined.
He added that he wouldn’t have parked outside the bays to unload his children’s bag and groceries had the two cars not hogged the loading bays.
Here is what he said
I came into the unloading bay with both bays full at 10.15pm, so I parked in front of the rubbish shutter.
I sent my three children whom 1 was sleeping and 1 is a 4months old baby, my groceries and 4 school bags home and came down at 10.26pm to be fined at 10.23pm.
I went to check the 2 cars, they were not fined and their engines were cold when I touch them. They parked in the lot for a long period of time but were not fined.
Had the cars not hogged the loading bays, I would not have parked outside the bays to unload my childrens and stuffs.
I parked for less than 15 minutes and was fined but cars that parked for hours (doubt the sedans can carry items that requires hours to unload) were not fined.
Maybe because after fining me, the quota reached. Applaud for the double standards
