Motorbike clamping in Subang Jaya shows positive results

SELANGOR’s first motorcycle clamping exercise in Subang Jaya seems to be reducing the number of illegally parked motorcycles.

Subang Jaya Municipal Council says there has been a marked improvement since the effort was introduced in July in the Sunway, USJ10 and SS15 areas.

Council president Noraini Roslan said MPSJ had issued 152 compound notices under the exercise as of Aug 6.

“We are happy with the outcome of the new exercise. Motorcyclists are now wary of parking illegally and blocking specially designated parking bays,”

The programme, called E-Grip which began in July, was introduced to stop motorcyclists from blocking special parking bays, fire hydrants, disabled parking spots as well as walkways.

She also said the council had obtained 30 grip locks used to clamp motorcycle control levers, thus rendering them immobile, for the exercise.

“As of Aug 6, some 152 compound notices have been issued and we have no arrears as well,” she said.

Motorcyclists found guilty of the offence will be compounded under the Road Transportation MPSJ 2007 Rule.

The RM30 fine covers RM5 for clamping, compound charges at RM20 as well as a service charge of RM5.

Noraini said the council hoped the exercise will prompt motorcyclists to park their vehicles properly.

Members of the public are lauding the move, calling it a long-overdue enforcement exercise.

USJ 2 resident Harcharan Kaur Sidhu said she was all for clamping of illegally parked motorcycles.

“As a resident, I am surprised that such selfishness is being displayed by people in Subang.

“Motorcyclists sometimes take up a full parking lot to park their vehicles and go off. We need to clamp the motorcycles without giving it a second thought,” he added.

USJ 6 resident Juan Lee said it was a positive move towards a better community.

“This is just the beginning of educating the public about the need to park at the spots designated for them,” he added.
