VISITORS to Damansara Perdana are frustrated by the actions of some motorists who double-park in the there.
A recent check by StarMetro at 11am on a weekday showed many cars double parked along several roads in the area.
“There are not enough parking bays and people double-park all the time,” said a resident, who only wished to be known as Nurul.
She added that lunch hour was the worst.
A woman who only wanted to be known as Jays, 35, echoed her sentiments.
“Parking in the area is a headache as many people even triple and quadruple park,” said the Damansara Perdana resident.
She said most did not leave their handphone number on the windscreen, leaving frustrated motorists trapped and blasting their horns for prolonged periods of time.
“I feel the situation is caused by workers who refuse to use their basement parking bays and leaving their vehicles on the road instead as it is more convenient.”
She said the place did not feel safe either, especially at night.
According to Jays, there are two wine shops in the area selling cheap liquor and many of the shops’ customers can be seen drinking in public all night.
“There have also been instances where the police were called at night because of fights breaking out,” she said.
An employee at a laundromat, however, claimed that many who double parked only did so for a short period.
“Most are just running errands and paying bills and don’t park for long,” he said.
