Children were most delighted in occasion of this nature, the organiser also gave away many lanterns, food, mooncakes and drinks together with presentation of cultural folk dance of mid autumn theme by junior residents. Magic shows, lantern parade were among programmes of the night….
Nevertheless, the highlight of the night was none other than some 40 prizes to be given away through lucky draws…..from a grand prize of foldable bicycle to children school stationeries……the joyful biennial event ended with warmest ovation from the crowd around 10:30pm.
We look forward to next biennial moon cake festival by 2018……
Many in Malaysia have the class D license (car). But you’ll be surprised how many really know where they cannot park.
To park in a “No Parking” area is an offence. It contravenes Section 119(2) of the R.T.O (Road Transport Ordinance 1978). The penalty is RM200.
Where are some of the places one cannot park? Amongst them are:-
A bus being a large vehicle obviously needs lots of space to park. Do not park your vehicle near such places. Remember, park your vehicle a minimum of 9 metres from a bus stop.
Park a car at least 3 metres from a fire hydrant. In times of emergencies, the Fire Brigade needs to stop quickly and lack of space would hamper their operations. So, avoid parking in such areas.
Most hydrants are easily recognizable. They have a large red H symbol on it.
“Obscure” means hard to see.
Corners are a good example. Cars approaching most likely cannot be seen clearly. Putting or parking your vehicle there might cause an accident. As such, avoid parking in such situations.
Park at least 9 metres from the above junctions. The above 2 places are amongst some of the most dangerous places.
Many accidents in fact happen here. Drivers have difficulty trying to come out.
A large vehicle, for example a lorry or a van parked very near a T or cross junction, hampers one’s visibility.
Are you aware that in cases of accidents, your vehicle which is parked in such places, could be quoted as the cause of the accident?
As such, you are therefore liable.
Corners are difficult areas to maneuver. Parking in such places, without doubt, makes it difficult to negotiate. Such being the case, Do not park in such places if you can.
Going up and down such a place is not only difficult but dangerous as well. Having vehicles parked in such an area, will most definitely not help a driver at all.
Please co-operate by refraining from parking in such an area.
There might be a few other places where parking is not advisable. But the above appears to be some of the areas most likely to cause an accident.
Heavy vehicles, like lorry, crane, excavator, trailer are not encouraged to park within our taman or residential street. However, it is the jurisdiction of the JPJ(RTD) and Majlis for the enforcement.
As good drivers, we try our very best not to be involved in an accident. Let’s also try our utmost best not to get other people involved in accidents also.
Refrain then from places such as those mentioned, from parking your vehicles!
