Cars double-parking near Jalan Riong, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The authorities say their enforcement officers conduct clamping operations only once every six days.

OFFICE workers in Jalan Riong, Bangsar, Kuaal Lumpur, are upset with motorists double-parking their vehicles.

They claim some customers of shops and restaurants leave their cars unattended.

An employee at Menara Mutiara Bangsar, who wanted to be known only as Rhoger, said:  “It is upsetting to see a row of cars parked behind yours when you want to leave. Some of the double-parked cars lead into the main road, causing traffic jams.

“Some drivers do not leave their contact number in their cars. It’s understandable if they park for a short time, but that is usually not the case.

“I once had to wait for an hour to get out of the parking space as the owner of the car blocking mine was nowhere to be found.

“Those who leave their cars in non-designated parking areas risk being issued a summons.

“A friend who visited me during lunch had her car clamped because it was parked illegally.”

Rhoger said he hoped the authorities would take action to prevent double-parking.


A Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan spokesman said its enforcement officers had issued summonses to those double-parking.

He added that the officers monitored hot areas such as Bangsar.

“We have 25 teams to monitor 158 areas.

“Before we clamp a car, we will scan it or do a background check to see if the owner has outstanding summonses.

“We have only one clamping operation every six days. However, if the situation warrants it, we can have it more often.” 

The spokesman dismissed claims that luxury cars that committed offences got away scot-free.
