MOTORISTS in Klang will be able to use their monthly parking stickers on any of their vehicles starting tomorrow.
Council president Datuk Mohd Yazid Bidin said the new monthly parking coupon would be more beneficial to residents compared to the existing system.
Currently, Mohd Yazid said motorists could only use the monthly parking coupon for one vehicle because the stickers would have the vehicle numbers printed on them.
It was an offence to use the same sticker on another vehicle, he added.
“However, we have done away with the old system so that motorists can use the same coupon on other vehicles.
“This way, a motorist who has more than one car is only required to buy one monthly coupon instead of one for every vehicle,” he said at the full board meeting on Wednesday.
Mohd Yazid said the move was aimed at cutting down red tape and reduce the burden on the residents.
Although the move could affect the council’s parking revenue, he said, the council was bent on providing efficient service to ratepayers.
Mohd Yazid also said the monthly coupon, which was priced at RM80, had a security chip in it.
With the embedded chip, he said, the council’s enforcement team would be able to detect fake coupons by using a scanner.
“I believe motorists will be able to benefit from the introduction of the new system,” he said.
