res­i­denTs of Jalan Se­man­gat op­po­site Jaya 33 Mall, Pe­tal­ing Jaya, dread go­ing home in the evening.

In­con­sid­er­ate mo­torists go­ing to the mall and the Dig­i­tal Mall nearby have been park­ing hap­haz­ardly by the road­side, caus­ing con­ges­tion.

TAM YENG SIANG said de­spite the clamp­ing zone signs put up by the lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, many still park their ve­hi­cles il­le­gally along Jalan Se­man­gat.

“Every time I pass the mall on my way home, I see ve­hi­cles parked in front of the mall. Some even dou­ble park their ve­hi­cles.

“The irony is that even though many cars are parked il­le­gally, only one is clamped by the au­thor­i­ties.

“These il­le­gally parked ve­hi­cles are dis­rupt­ing the traf­fic flow along the road, es­pe­cially dur­ing peak hours,” he said.

He said Pe­tal­ing Jaya Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (MBPJ) should in­crease pa­trols and en­force­ment in the area to pre­vent il­le­gal park­ing.
