to Langkawi was un­happy about park­ing touts near the Kuala Perlis Ferry Ter­mi­nal, who cause traf­fic snarls in the area.

Ka­marul Ishak, who parked his car at the ter­mi­nal be­fore board­ing a ferry to Langkawi, said the park­ing touts caused con­ges­tion when they di­rected ve­hi­cles to park by the road­side near the ter­mi­nal.

He said the road near the ter­mi­nal should not be used for park­ing as it would dis­rupt traf­fic flow.

“We need to en­sure traf­fic is smooth be­cause tour buses need space to drop off and pick up pas­sen­gers.”

He said the park­ing touts, who op­er­ate on mo­tor­cy­cles, ush­ered driv­ers to park their ve­hi­cles by the road­side.

“For first-time vis­i­tors, they will lis­ten to the touts as they are not fa­mil­iar with the area. This makes the road tight and af­fects traf­fic.”
