If you decide to illegally park then be prepared to bear the consequences. Whether you agree with the rules or not, you still have to obey them to avoid getting yourself into trouble. One would rather to just walk a few meters away than to pay a heavy price.
But how would you react if your vehicle got unfairly clamped? Doesn’t make any sense does it? Why do you have to pay for a fine when you did nothing wrong? This driver unfortunately got his car clamped despite parking in an empty parking spot; plus, there were no signs to indicate that he shouldn’t park there.
On Saturday (3rd September), a video was posted on the Facebook page Mia Saripah where a male driver filmed his unfortunate incident when his car got clamped. The most confusing thing was that he did not seem to break any rules as there were no signs that indicated that the parking space was reserved or that visitors shouldn’t park there. According to the caption, the incident took place at Berjaya Times Square Mall.
“We can easily exit this space, we’re not even bothering anyone, but we still got clamped,” the man said in the video. He even pointed out that the space was not occupied by showing the numbers on the ground and the position of his car. Since the video was posted, it quickly went viral with now over 1.4 million views, 12k reactions and 2.7k comments.
The driver’s predicament raised questions among netizens as to what he could’ve done wrong to deserve the fine and his vehicle immobilised. Some suggested that it’s probably because he might have left his car unlocked and that security clamped it to prevent the car from being stolen. Others theorised that the parking space was probably meant for the nearby carwash service.
A few netizens suggested that he should bring this matter up to the management to get a better understanding of the situation. So far, the Facebook page did not provide any updates as to what happened next nor were there any updates from the original source.
We hope that the matter is resolved and that it was probably a case of misunderstanding. We’ll keep you posted if there’s any further info.
