KUALA LUMPUR: A video of a woman wielding a steering lock while screaming at a Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer after he car was clamped, is making its rounds on social media.
The one minute, 37 second-long video began with the woman standing outside her car, wielding a steering lock and yelling angrily at a council officer.
The front right wheel of her car is seen clamped.
She had yelled at the officer, asking him if it was “wrong for her to buy food.”
The officer replied: “No, it is not wrong for you to buy food. But you parked your car wrongly (at a spot for the disabled).
The woman angrily retorted that she had nowhere else to park, and that she had bought her food quickly.
She asked as to why he had clamped her car.
“We must understand that the OKU (the disabled) do not have time, and I am helping the OKU, don’t you understand?,” she said.
She stomped her feet angrily when the officer asked if she was disabled, as she had parked in a spot for the disabled.
The woman claimed that she was helping her disabled husband.
The officer, who remained calm throughout the situation, said that while he understood, she needed to show proof in order to qualify to park there.
At the same time, the person recording the video, believed to be another MPSJ officer, urged his colleague to ask for the woman to produce an OKU card.
The video has since gone viral, garnering more than 90,000 views on Facebook.
Netizens praised the MPSJ officer for maintaining his cool throughout the situation.
Facebook user Lim Khee Ching said the council officer earned everyone’s respect at remaining calm and professional.
Another user, Ahmad Kamal, remarked that the woman had committed several offences, as seen in the video clip.
“Parking illegally, obstructing civil servants from carrying out their duties, criminal intimidation, and disturbing public order,” he noted.
Meanwhile, Serdang police said while the incident happened in the district, no report was lodged.
The New Straits Times is contacting MPSJ for comments.
