Illegally parked lorries pose danger to motorists

Residents fear the lorries parked along Persiaran Prima Utama 3 in Puchong Prima blocked the view of traffic.

Lavender Terrace Puchong Prima residents are feeling frustrated with lorry owners who park illegally along Persiaran Prima Utama 3 in Puchong, Selangor.

Their lorries not only take up one lane of a stretch of the road, but also obstruct the view of motorists trying to exit Jalan Prima 7/3, Jalan Prima 7/4 and Jalan Prima 7/5, especially during peak hours.

According to residents, they raised their concerns in a community chat group, which included the lorry owners, but the vehicles continued to be parked there.

A resident, who did not want to be named, said he was worried about children playing outdoors as the lorries blocked the view of the traffic.

“There have been a few times residents almost got into an accident because they do not have a clear view.

“We do not want an accident to happen,” he said.

The management of 280 Park Homes, which is a low-rise condominium located opposite Lavender Terrace, said that the condo residents had complained about the same problem several times in the community chat group.

“The parked lorries worsen peak-hour traffic congestion in the area,” said a management spokesperson.

Since February, the management has tried to deter lorry owners from parking there by placing warning notices on their windshield.

However, the move only worked for a short while because the lorries would return to their spots not long after.

He added that despite fines issued, the lorries continued to be parked there.

A Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) spokesperson said the council received multiple complaints from residents regarding the illegally parked lorries in Jalan Prima Utama 3, Puchong Prima.

A total of 11 compounds were issued under its Park Bylaw 7(1) 2005 in June and July which carry a RM1,000 fine for each offence.
