This is something that many who live and work in the Klang Valley encounter on a daily basis. Sometimes we are blocked, sometimes we block. Double-parking is a common sight especially in busy business centres like Bangsar Telawi, Damansara Uptown and USJ Taipan. It’s a blood boiling situation when blocked by an unresponsive double-parker, but whatever it is, don’t take the law into your own hands.

“I would like to remind motorists not to take the law into their own hands when they are faced with these types of incidents. Instead, call our traffic officers or the local council to tow away the offending vehicle,” Federal traffic police chief SAC Mahamad Akhir Darus told The Sun. He added that those caught double-parking will be issued a summons that carries a RM300 fine.

Mahamad Akhir said that double-parking is becoming a serious issue in the Klang Valley, with private cars and delivery truck drivers doing so for their “convenience”. “Double parking restricts the view of pedestrians crossing the road, increasing their risk of being hit by vehicles. The law is that double parking is a no-go. just keep looking until you find a proper parking spot,” he urged.

Some would argue that it will take time for the police or local authorities to remove blocking vehicles. “I understand the public’s concern but a law is still a law,” the man in blue added. Don’t do this.

Inconsiderate double-parkers that have seen their cars damaged have received little sympathy. In February, a lorry driver rammed his truck into over 20 cars along a busy road in Nibong Tebal. The incident made headlines, and the majority of netizens applauded the lorry driver.

Parking lots are hard to come by in some areas, and if you choose to double park (it’s illegal, we’re not condoning it), the least you can do is to leave a contact number on the dashboard and respond promptly when contacted, or when you hear the horn.
