    Beware of "Kompoun" month!

    I use to park my car opposite Summit USJ(USJ2/2) and use the pedestrian bridge to go to Summit & Giant. Reason being no traffic jam & it's fast & convenient to do my quick shopping. This morning I'm really unfortunate & unlucky to receive a "kompoun" by parking my car there for half an hour I park my car about 10.05 am and the time of the kompoud was 10.18am. In fact when I reach there, I saw 2 uniform personel under a tree from a distance. One guy is on the motor & the other lady was standing with both hand punching on something. I thought she is on some SMS thingy & didn't come into my mind that there will be kompoun at that area. (How stupid i was !) They actually stand a distance away, quietly & secretly trap you just like those caught you for speed trap where they will hide somewhere. There is only a few cars park there when I was there, so only my car and those cars before me kena whereas cars after that have escaped. I went straight to MPSJ to appeal but they r not willing to cancel the compound only reduce 50% to RM40. I'm still hesitating to pay for it. So be careful where you park, especially this month.

    Don't play play, heard they can tow your car if you have plenty of council summons.
    If not me, who? If not now, when?

    I find the law somewhat blur about parking a car along a residential road. I was told once that council CAN fine cars found parking along residential roads IF there's an official complaint by the residents. I don't think anyone is clear on how the law works and no-one can question or argue on council's method of enforcement. This can lead to abuse and victimization, where I dare to say that fines are only PUNITIVE and NOT solve the problem NOW or in the future, lookingb at how the gahmen works for the past 50 years.
    For example, you get fined frequently (I know many kena before at my place) for parking opposite your own home because you don't have anywhere else to park and most folks here own 2 cars at least. a) hang the fines!.. b) waste time arguing with council and still PAY a minimal fine?..what logic?
    The ILLOGICAL issue here is that if you get a summons, YOU HAVE TO PAY a minimal fine eventhough innocent.. seldom you get scot free. Apa logic?..

    I dare say one thing!.. Those who own big expensive cars but yet can't afford to pay for proper parking DESERVE to get fined!.

    There's obviously something very wrong with the system. If there's NO enforcement, people will abuse and park everywhere and your residential road becomes a busy narrow and irritating road every working day.
    What to do?.. Everyone in SJ/USJ work towards a gated community if anything like security and peace is to be lasting.

    1. Weekdays parking only 1 ringgit la...

    2. Wanna park for free... just park it inside Giant !!! Take a walk to Summit lorr... its healthy walking... and less stress handling those enforcement fellas. [they're just doing their job... abeit in an "objectable" style]

    Furthermore, if I am not mistaken, there is a string of signages that says... "NO PARKING" along the street... I'm sure you saw that too...no?

    that's what i usually do unless in a hurry, then pay rm1 lor to park at summit. one time, however, when a guard at giant saw me parking my car in their premises and walking straight outta it to summit, he gave me a dirty look.
    It's better to be poor than to be rich. The rich always have to fear becoming poor, but the poor never have to fear becoming rich.

    Heh!.. I've witnessed this kind time and again. Not amazingly, more often than not, the wealthier they are, the worse or more extreme they could be.

    Is not the parking fees that i wanted to avoid, like u say I can park free at Giant. I just wanted to avoid the traffic jam at the traffic light junction. As I was just staying at USJ 2, just thought of don't hv to drive out to the main road , go through the jam and save time. Look like I can't enjoy the convenient shopping anymore, maybe should go to Carrefour more.

    Actually MPSJ can saman for parking at residential areas. They don't normally do so unless the residents there complain. That's what I understand. I live in USJ6 and the residential road facing Taipan (which is directly facing MPSJ) is permanently parked full of cars during working hours. Guess the residents there never complain... The area in front of the Telekom building right in fron of MPSJ (next to Shell) is also permanently parked with cars directly below the no parking sign. I do wonder about the selective enforcement.

    Today I kena SAMAN by MPSJ Ok... I know, my fault I will NOT dispute that... but what I REALLY REALLY bengang is that I kena saman for NOT parking in a designated parking lot...

    I parked in a little space AFTER a parking lot... this after going round and round looking for a parking lot, there was NO MORE PARKING lots available. I DID NOT double park, neither did I block ANYBODY... just took a little space near a kerb. For that, I KENA RM80 saman!! And what really bugged the hell out of me, was there was this stack of MERCS and BEEMERS and ACCORDS and CAMRYS double parked in front of the banks - yet they did not kena saman... why??? I haven't the foggiest clue, why ?? 4 minutes in a bank... not blocking/double parking... KENA for NOT parking in a LOT!

    I guess from NOW on.... whenever I am in freaking Taipan - I will be taking pictures of cars double parking...or how these enforcement fellas choose who to saman... just to prove a point that the MPSJ enforcement officers are a bunch of useless fellas that would saman as and when they please and whom they please - cars of within their reach, instead of going for those that hog the parking lots without paying and those double/triple parking...!!!

    ps: went to MPSJ - oso to appeal/pay and want to cabut... instead, kena take number, wait in queue for counter service... number 38 in waiting list... waste time, effort and money - really NOT my (*)day - and the counter girl.... must be that time of the month!!!

    Bro, if you had parked in a designated lot AND did not put a parking ticket u only get a saman face value of RM40. Shouldn't it be the same?

    In KL, they are also handing out saman (in plainclothes) to those who throw ciggy butts on the streets/ longkang under the Akta Parit dan Jalan Raya 1973(i think).
    RM30 if u pay within 14 days or RM50 thereafter.

    Today I saw some plainclothes enforcement guys too (not sure MPSJ or some Majlis Filem Negara ppl) going after dvd sellers in Summit. They were surely damn rude to passer bys (to me n a few others). They screamed (yes. they did) "U siapa?! Tengok apa?!" as i was blur i just said saja nak tengok that fella screamed "Tengok apa?! Tengok apa?! Pergi! Jangan buat kacau!"

    Man, they thought i'm dvd seller punya boss meh....

    Time and again, I've said fines are punitive and there'll never be minimal or an end to this kind of issues. The authorities are content and happy to collect revenue and enrich their coffers from you folks who make the slightest mistakes. Very wrong approach in our Malaysian governance since Merdeka. Its never crossed my mind that things are going to change for the better. God bless Malaysia!. Perhaps better change to motorbike soon.. owning a car is becoming more expensive and morever a bigger liability and risk.

    Yeah lor. I think you must have worn a pouch across your belly and your face looks like one. And when you opened your mouth and said "saja nak tengok" that's it - you also sound like one.
