IRRESPONSIBLE motorists habitually park at a bay meant for the disabled in Lorong Dataran Wangsa in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur.
During StarMetro’s visit, a car was double-parked in front of a bay meant for the disabled at a clinic.
A passer-by claimed the marking on the bay had faded, making it less visible to motorists.
“It should be repainted and signage put up to inform motorists that it is meant for the disabled,” he said.
Nor Syahira Md Zin said she saw a family with someone using a wheelchair having to park elsewhere when visiting the clinic because of the motorists’ irresponsible actions.
Azra Rizal Noor Azman said Kuala Lumpur City Hall officers would patrol the area before the movement control order.
“They would issue summonses, but that stopped during the Covid--19 pandemic and I have not seen them since.
“There are also motorcycles parked on the five-foot-way in front of childcare centres.”
Optometry shop worker Nor Izzati Mohd Nazim said the two-lane road could only accommodate one-way traffic.
“This is because many vehicles park on the road shoulder.
“DBKL personnel sometimes clamp the tyres of cars parked illegally but the problem persists,” she said. — By FARID WAHAB
