KB M-CY­CLISTS IG­NORE PARK­ING RULES

New Straits Times - - News -

MANY mo­tor­cy­clists are ig­nor­ing the Kota Baru Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil’s (MPKB) di­rec­tive by park­ing their bikes in park­ing lots meant for four-wheel­ers.

This takes place daily in the morn­ing, es­pe­cially near banks, shop­ping com­plexes and pub­lic places.

Many mo­torists claimed that MPKB did not take ac­tion against mo­tor­cy­clists who vi­o­late the law, in­clud­ing those park­ing their bikes in Jalan Kuala Krai.

Mo­torist Mohd Hafiz Yahya said he had sev­eral times seen park­ing spa­ces meant for cars be­ing taken up by mo­tor­cy­clists.

“They parked their bikes and left them there for hours. They are ei­ther aware of it but choose to ig­nore the rules, or they are have no knowl­edge of traf­fic rules.

“MPKB, as the coun­cil in charge of this, should take ac­tion or give them sum­monses,” said the 34-year-old from Telipot.

A MPKB spokesman said its en­force­ment of­fi­cers would con­tinue to carry out checks in Jalan Kuala Krai and other roads.

“Our of­fi­cers will some­times over­look these of­fences.

“How­ever, from now on, we will en­sure that mo­tor­cy­clists who break the rules are is­sued sum­monses on the spot when found park­ing in spa­ces meant for cars.”
