GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Island City Council (MBPP) has prepared a disabled person's (OKU) parking sticker for the woman whose car was clamped while taking her wheelchair-bound mother to the bank.

However, the woman would still have to fill out the necessary documents with the Social Welfare Department as a caregiver to a disabled person, MBPP Mayor Datuk Maimunah Mohd Sharif said.

The woman's mother is believed to have suffered a stroke recently and was wheelchair-bound,

On Monday (Nov 20), a video went viral showing the unidentified woman and her mother having their car, that had been parked in a bay reserved for the disabled, clamped as it did not have a sticker.

Many netizens reacted angrily to the clip over MBPP's harsh enforcement of traffic laws.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Maimunah showed reporters CCTV footage from the council showing that the woman had parked her car at the lot for about two hours.

"We found out she had come to ask about how to get an OKU parking sticker on Monday after her car was clamped.

"So we have prepared the sticker for her to apply," Maimunah said, adding that she hoped the woman would go to the MBPP office to fill out the necessary forms.
