There is this very large crane always parked in front of the secondary school and is obstructing traffic flow. Parents are unable to use this drop zone area and thus ended up dropping their kids everywhere and causing congestion at this junction. When I was asked to drop my girl last week, I didn't give it much thought as the driver put on his hazard lights and I assumed that the crane had a breakdown. But the same thing happened again and again though not daily until it irritated me especially when this guy conveniently parked his crane here while he went to the nearby coffee shop for his breakfast and most probably reading his Nanyang Siang Pau.

Too bad for him. This morning I got up on the wrong side of the bed. I called the USJ 8 police and told them I would be waiting for them to send their patrol car to summon him. Sure enough they came and very professionally issued a summon. To their horror, the vehicle road tax has expired for several months. Meanwhile, that guy 100 meters aways was gobbling his favourite wan ton mee not knowing his twenty tan vehicle was also having his. I guess he will have a shock to see that his 35 ton vehicle ate most probably 100 times more than him for the double helping - one for illegal parking and another on for expired road tax and insurance.

I have made arrangement with the police that should anyone of you see commercial vehicles parked at this place, please call the USJ 8 police station at 03-56356904. They will not hesitate to come and issue the summon. I have also informed the school and was surprised that this has been going on for some time now. She said I should see at one time there was a trailer, that crane and a tractor happily parked there with all their hazard lights on. Gosh, this spot seems to be the Bermuda Triangle of USJ. They even challenged the school that there is nothing they can do. I guess we have showed them that we can if you also do your part.

Good Job PC.....appreciate the help rendered! I have seen cars piling up on the traffic light turnings to the school, but didnt know it was due to the crane, since I dont turn to the school.

Let me share with you what happened the last time the Prime Minister of China who was here last December leading a trade delegation. The China PM was given the most impressive economy report of Malaysia that he couldn't believe based on the facts given, Malaysia is even doing better than China. Meantime, he also noticed that our Pak Lah was sleeping nicely throughout the presentation. Wanting to spice things up a bit, he woke up Pak Lah and he asked, "Mr Prime Minister don't mind me asking you this question. "How often do you have a erection?"

Not knowing the fact that most Mandarin educated Chinese cannot pronounce the R properly, Pak Lah answered "Oh, according to the constitution, I must have one once every 5 years. The last one I had was way back in 2004. Now the whole country is waiting for me to tell them when I am going to have one and I told my country that I will have one as and when I think the time is ripe."

He then sleepily asked Premier Hu, "And may I know when you had yours last?"

. To their horror, the vehicle road tax has expired for several months..

Jokes aside.... an expired road tax probably means NO INSURANCE to be on the road... Now imagine a bus/van/carload of schoolkids [or even you or me] ramming into the rear of this STUPIDLY parked crane :mad: ... no need to imagine further !!!

LACK OF ENFORCEMENT!!! This is the same reason why express bus drivers with TONS of summonses are still plying the highways and expressways...

For all you know, PC - do you rally think the driver of these big trucks/cranes [whatever] really bother about summonses.. The freaking driver would have used the 2 summons issued to him as toilet paper to wipe his a*** ! :mad:

So what do you propose can be done?
I'd say impound the vehicles every time, it'll make an impact. But then after money "changing hands", the authorities will have great reasons not to do it. The ball is in the authorities court.

As long as we keep calling the police they will come to summon them. What they do to the summons we don't have to worry too much and leave it to the authority. But please don't make a sweeping statement that they will kaw tim the police. Nobody can get the police to cancel the summon even how well connected they are with the police. I will put a challenge to you. At this moment I have a summon for speeding to settle. I will give you RM 500 if you can convince the police to cancel my summon. One condition - I want to be there when they do it or else you can just pay my summon using my RM 500 and tell me that you have done it and pocket the balance RM 200.
