Crackdown on ‘taiko’ who park as they please

SIBU: The municipal council here will take stern action against motorists who park their cars along sidewalks and near coffeeshops while enjoying their coffee or shopping. 

Its chairman, Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew, said enforcement officers had been directed to fine these inconsiderate taiko between RM200 and RM500. 

“These taiko think they are above the law and can do whatever they please but we are going to prove them wrong,” he said when declaring open an Agenda 21 seminar for 60 participants here yesterday. 

Lau said he was irked by their attitude of not using parking lots and by parking indiscriminately, they were causing obstruction and inconvenience to other road users. 

On another issue, Lau said he was glad that the once rampant theft of council flowers and the destruction of its facilities at several parks here had been minimised since it resorted to hiring security guards last year. – Bernama
