I WAS made to understand that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the authorities have decided to disallow any commercial organisation from legally reserving public parking bays within Kuala Lumpur.
I understand the necessity for this move, as many have misused this licence to reserve the bays or have even illegally blocked off bays for their own use.
What I do not understand is why DBKL and the authorities have not taken into consideration the needs of people like me, an elderly, disabled woman who cannot walk far.
This policy has made life much more difficult for me when I go to the clinic or bank.
Has it occurred to anyone that with the withdrawal, the bays are now monopolised by office workers, leaving people like me who need to run errands for half an hour or an hour without a hope of finding an empty bay.
I appeal to DBKL and the authorities to allow places like banks and clinics to have some parking bays allotted to them or at least have them marked as reserved for the disabled.
This would make a world of difference to people like me.
