A few days ago, I found a parking lot about 40 meters from Maybank Desa Pandan. I walked to the parking meter for a ticket but 3 peoples were ahead of me. I waited for about a minute before getting mine.
While walking back to the car, a DBKL enforcement officer has already placed a summon ticket on the windscreen. He was still there. I tried to argue but he said: "Dah lama dah kereta ni kat sini!"
So, that is how DBKL makes easy money. In less than 2 minutes, I was made to pay RM100. I have heard of similar cases before where DBKL enforcement officers prey on 'just-parked' vehicles to issue summon.
Where is their discretion? Did DBKL train them to be such nuisance? No wonder some of our rakyat hate DBKL and other local councils. Their enforcement personnel are more like a bunch of robots that enjoy issuing summon tickets. I think they are into a competition - whoever issues most tickets will get rewarded!
Arrghhhh!!! Its ok, I will pay mine. However, I am thinking of making a report to the MACC about some thieves and cheats at DBKL, some officers who are on the take and preying on customers lacking in adequate knowledge about local councils.
I am calling on readers who got evidence about DBKL officers' wrongdoings to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
