When drivers are slapped with summons or compounds, one can definitely agree on how much of a hassle it is to pay fines, in addition to the hefty amount that comes with it. Not to mention, there are also those who will resort to guileful tactic in an attempt to escape from getting caught.
One user on Facebook named Semelion Seron Do took to the Penduduk Sungai Petani FB group to call a Perodua Alza driver out for apparently stealing his traffic ticket in order to avoid paying the fine.
“They took my parking summon and put it on their car’s windshield. The driver probably did it to fool the police officer from penalising them. It was weird to see the car near mine receive a parking summon but not me. Turns out, my penalty notice is at the Alza car. If I didn’t retrieve the ticket, I wouldn’t even realised that I was fined in the first place! What an idiot,” Semelion wrote.
The matter also caught the attention of many netizens after another Facebook user, Hazmi Zainol, shared the post on the FB group B40 Buat Perangai Apa Harini. He wrote, “B40 group’s tactic to avoid being punished – take other people’s parking summon and put it on their car. When the police inspects, they’ll probably escape because the ticket is on their car’s windshield.”
Many netizens took to the comments section on Hazmi’s post to weigh in on the issue. Some commented that it was the first time they notice people “fighting over” parking summons. Others also questioned on whether the person would be fined twice if the police were to issue another summon. What do you think?
